As a coda to our post yesterday about what we felt was an unfair characterization of the EEOC, which one news outlet stated had “botched” a motion, when in reality, the motion was only a technical, procedural request for an EEOC attorney from out-of-state to argue in New York:   it has been reported that the Magistrate Judge “vacated an order he issued Sept. 2 that said EEOC trial attorney Thomas S. Lepak did not submit required documentation on time as part of his motion last week to appear pro hac vice on behalf of the agency.”
