Coffey v. Home Depot, et al., Law Div., Burlington Cty. (Suter, J.S.C.) – In this 2007 trial court decision, plaintiff alleged disparate treatment racial discrimination due to defendant’s failure to promote him five times in 2002. In addition to the fact that the alleged incidents were outside of the two-year LAD statute of limitations, the Court found each allegation of lost promotion to be a discrete instance of alleged discrimination and not susceptible to a continuing violation analysis.
