Painful and embarrasing and drawn out for everyone.
    See what I mean, they never lose. I should have worked for the government, it's guaranteed.

    Real Christians are a myth. They will turn on Jesus for the right amount of zeros. Fuck everyone of these assholes!

    A federal judge ruled in March 2017 that the state of North Carolina was obliged to make recompense to Myrick. The newly-disclosed settlement several months later was a consequence of that ruling.From OP . Didnít settle out of court, the judge ruled.

    It was an EEOC decision by an administrative law judge. It was not a federal judge, not in court, and was not properly-speaking a "settlement," unless they agreed on a lesser amount to avoid an appeal.

In the instant case, though, the judge was about to retire anyway, so there was no reason to push for a resignation in that circumstance.
    Why couldn’t the Judge just recuse herself?

    One week away from retirement, she lost her pension? Probably Health benefits,too.

    Seems extreme for just one week.

    I read the op and something is not right. One week from full retirement? A person could take sick days,vacation, any number of reasons.

    There is more here than what is in that op. It does not add up.

    Retirement are usually vested , so it’s possible she wasn’t 100 percent vested unless she completed the final week.

    Do you think I am so dumb I do not know about how pensions are vested? Good Lord, your answer does not begin to answer what I said!

    It does not make sense that one week from retirement she could not have taken a few days off,recused herself or something.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey
