UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK.
October 21, 1975.
Alifonsa Alicia Pareha Savage, Plaintiff
Robert J. Kibbee et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: WERKER
WERKER, D.J.: At the termination of a hearing on a motion for a preliminary injunction which was brought on by plaintiff above named, and denied, defendants orally above named, and denied, defendants orally moved to dismiss the causes of action brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended upon the ground that this court does not have jurisdiction. This action was commenced on September 9, 1975. Plaintiff filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on August 28, 1975, and as of the date of filing the complaint, the commission had not rendered a decision.
I am asked to assume jurisdiction on the basis that the EEOC will not reach plaintiff's complaint for a period of two years and consequently a right to sue letter will not be issued during that period of time and therefore this court should assume jurisdiction. I decline to do so on the ground that the procedural requirements have not been met. Weise v. Syracuse University, 522 F.2d 397 (2d Cir. 1975), slip op. p. 4739, 4764. The causes of action under Title VII, 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000-d and 2000-e, are therefore dismissed with leave to amend at such time as those requirements have been met.
Defendants are granted 20 days within which to answer the remaining causes of action.
