  • Cases addressing issues such as whether a lawsuit was filed within the applicable statute of limitations are often discussed only in esoteric legal publications. However, a recent ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court on that very topic in a race discrimination case stands to have a direct impact on many companies and must be carefully considered by employers. This decision not only broadens employers' potential exposure to race cases, but also may require that many companies change their record retention policies.
