CHRO Did Not Find Initial Merit - Is My Case Lost?

The answer is no. If you filed a CHRO complaint and the CHRO did not find initial merit, it does not mean that your case is over.  Furthermore, it does not mean that the CHRO was correct in finding that the case lacks merit.  If the CHRO decides to not retain the case for further investigation, you can obtain a release of jurisdiction and file a lawsuit.  The CHRO's initial merit assessment decision is inadmisssible as evidence at trial.  The CHRO's decision does not mean that your case lacks merit. In fact, Attorney James Sabatini has represented clients in cases where the CHRO found no initial merit but following Attorney Sabatini's filing of the lawsuit and performance of discovery (document production, depositions, etc.), the cases have resolved for meaningful results including instances where the client received monetary compensation and job reinstatement.
