The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal heard oral argument on February 1, 2011, in Derek Carder, et al v. Continental Airlines, Inc., No. 10-20105. On behalf of Continental Airlines, Inc., Mr. Londa argued that, unlike Title VII, the Uniform Services Employment and Retirement Rights Act ("USERRA") does not provide a cause of action for hostile environment harassment. This is a case of first impression in the circuit courts of appeals and on March 22, 2011, the 5th Circuit sustained Continental's position. On October 3, 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court sustained Continental Airlines' position by denying Appellants' petition for a writ of certiorari; Dallas Area Rapid Transit v. Amalgamated Transit Union Local No. 1338, 273 S.W.3d 659 (Tex. 2008), cert denied, 129 S. Ct. 2767 (2009). Mr. Londa represented Dallas Area Rapid Transit ("DART") in its appeal to the Texas Supreme Court of an adverse ruling by the Dallas Court of Appeals. The Texas Supreme Court reversed the Court of Appeals' decision and dismissed ATU's lawsuit against DART. The Texas Supreme Court's opinion is a landmark decision with respect to governmental immunity and the relationship between Section 13(c) of the Federal Transit Act and the Texas Labor Code's restrictions on public sector collective bargaining.
