McDonald v. Antelope Valley Cmty. Coll. Dist., 45 Cal. 4th 88 (2008)

Plaintiffs in this case alleged racial harassment, discrimination and retaliation against the District. The trial court granted summary judgment to the employer with regard to Sylvia Brown’s claims on the ground they were barred by the statute of limitations applicable to claims asserted under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”). The court of appeal and the California Supreme Court in this opinion reversed the dismissal, holding that the statute of limitations was tolled while Brown was voluntarily pursuing internal administrative remedies against the District.
