Barcume v. City of Flint
Court of Appeals for the Eastern District of Michigan
819 F.Supp. 631 (E.D. Mich. 1993)
Barcume (plaintiff) and 12 other female law enforcement officers filed suit against the City of Flint (City) (defendant) and the Flint Police Officers Association (FPOA), alleging the Flint Police Department (FPD) engaged in discriminatory hiring and promotion practices, in violation of several civil rights statutes. After extensive discovery had been completed, Barcume filed a motion to amend the complaint, which the court granted. After Barcume filed the amended complaint, the City filed a motion to dismiss the amended counts, arguing that the statute of limitations had run on the additional claims.
