Mary Settineri v. PNC Bank Corp. The New Jersey Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal of plaintiff’s claims of age discrimination and retaliation under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD). The court found that the two individual defendants in this case were not involved in any allegedly adverse employment actions within the two-year statute of limitations. The “continuing violation doctrine” is an equitable exception to the NJLAD statute of limitations but, “by definition, [a continuing violation] is comprised of a pattern or series of acts connected for liability purposes by the fact that an act contributing to the claim occurred within the filing period” Shepherd v Hunterdon Development Center quoting National R.R. Passenger Corp. v. Morgan.
