4th Circuit Issues Important Decision Re: EEOC Subpoena Power


EEOC v. Ranstead, ____F.3d___(4th Cir. July 18, 2012), is an interesting  case.  It is lengthly and well reasoned and is "an everything you wanted to know" decision about the authority of the EEOC to issue investigative subpoenas. The EEOC's power is very broad. Here, the court found that the ADA and the Title VII subpoenas were timely and relevant and therefore, enforced.
