Supreme Court Docket: Demystifying the Garrett Decision

Tuesday, May 22, 2001


The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state employees are barred from filing suits seeking money damages because states are immune from such suits under the 11th Amendment of the Constitution. This session will explore the ramifications of the decision for employees of state governments and discuss other avenues for pursuing a resolution of charges of employment discrimination.
