U.S. Supreme Court Denies Review Of Third Circuit's Ruling That Racial Discrimination Claim Is Barred By Res Judicata

The U.S. Supreme Court denied review of a Third Circuit ruling that a psychiatrist who was fired from her job at a hospital is barred from relitigating her claim for national origin and religious discrimination based on a judicially reviewed decision by the state civil service commission. In addition, the Ninth Circuit found that plaintiff failed to rebut the hospital's legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for her discharge and failed to make a prima facie case based on failure to promote. The Third Circuit's unpublished opinion was issued October 12, 2002.
