Levy Ratner and LDF File Amicus Brief in 11th Circuit Case Concerning Equitable Tolling of Discrimination Claims

April 19, 2016

Levy Ratner’s Dana E. Lossia and Robert H. Stroup, on behalf of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, filed an En Banc Amicus Brief in Villarreal v. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, et al. (11th Circuit).  They argue that the 11th Circuit should affirm its long-standing precedent that a plaintiff who has no reason to believe he has been the victim of discrimination is entitled to equitable tolling of his claims until he knows or reasonably should know the facts sufficient to make out a discrimination claim.
