Union Pacific Railroad Co. v. EEOC

U.S. Supreme Court

Question(s) Presented

1. Whether the Seventh Circuit erred by holding, in conflict with decisions of the Fifth Circuit, that the EEOC may enforce a subpoena after the charging employee has initiated litigation, and even after the charging employee’s claim has been adjudicated meritless in court.

2. Whether the Seventh Circuit erred by holding, in conflict with decisions of the Tenth and Eleventh Circuits, that a charge alleging only individual discrimination permits the EEOC to subpoena nationwide information about suspected discrimination against other employees in other employment practices.
