Breaking: SCOTUS Grants Cert. in EEOC Duty to Conciliate Discrimination Claims

This just in: The Supreme Court issued an order granting certiorari in Mach Mining v. EEOC. Per SCOTUSblog, the issue presented is:
Whether and to what extent a court may enforce the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's mandatory duty to conciliate discrimination claims before filing suit.
The Supreme Court is finishing up its 2013-14 season. So, they'll tackle this one next year.

Also, the Court did not act on Young v. UPS, the pregnancy workplace accommodation case. We'll have to wait and see whether they grant cert in that one.
