FCHR Order No. 11-080

FINAL ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR

RELIEF FROM AN UNLAWFUL EMPLOYMENT PRACTICE

This matter is before the Commission for consideration of the Order Relinquishing Jurisdiction and Closing File, dated July 29, 2011, issued in the above-styled matter by Administrative Law Judge Robert S. Cohen.

Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law

Judge Cohen’s order reflects that the matter was before him on the parties’ Joint Stipulation for Entry of Order and Judgment. A review of that filing indicates that the matter has been settled. Judge Cohen consequently closed the file of the Division of Administrative Hearings and relinquished jurisdiction of the matter to the Commission for entry of a final order consistent with the parties’ Joint Stipulation for Entry of Order and Judgment.

Based on Judge Cohen’s order and the above-referenced stipulation, we conclude that the matter has been settled, and we conclude that the Complaint of Discrimination and Petition for Relief should be dismissed with prejudice. Accord, generally, Kelley v. Office of Insurance Regulation, FCHR Order No. 10-003 (January 13, 2010), Deloach v. Country Hearth, FCHR Order No. 08-051 (July 29, 2008), and Fletcher v. Edward Waters College, FCHR Order No. 07-001 (January 17, 2007).

Exceptions

Neither party filed exceptions to the Administrative Law Judge’s Order Relinquishing Jurisdiction and Closing File.

Dismissal

The Petition for Relief and Complaint of Discrimination are DISMISSED with prejudice.
