Griffin v. US, No. 09-5045

In plaintiff's suit against the Secretary of Army claiming sex discrimination after the Army granted a promotion to a male colleague instead of plaintiff, United States Court of Federal Claims' dismissal of her suit is affirmed as 28 U.S.C. section 1500 applies and divests the Court of Federal Claims of jurisdiction over her Equal Pay Act claim because plaintiff's claims arise from the same operative facts and seek the same relief as the pending claim in the district court.
