Robertson v. Goode, 1999 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 2381 (E.D.N.Y.)

Lawsuits, Miscellaneous

Plaintiff student was enrolled in the law school run by defendant administrators. During his last term, he was informed that he did not have the required number of credits to graduate. Plaintiff then petitioned for a waiver of the graduation requirements, but never received a written response. On May 20, 1991, he received information over the phone that his petition was denied. Over the next several years, plaintiff was unable to resolve his graduation status. In late 1997, plaintiff filed suit, pro se, seeking injunctive relief and monetary damages under 42 U.S.C.S. §§ 1981 and 1983 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, tit. VII, 42 U.S.C.S. § 2000e et seq. In response, defendants filed a motion to dismiss pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6). The court granted the motion and dismissed the action because the statute of limitations on plaintiffs’ claims began running on May 20, 1991, and plaintiff did not file his complaint until well after the three-year limitations period on all his claims had expired
