Many Navy Chaplains' Claims Dismissed on Limitations Grounds

The federal district court for the District of Columbia last week dismissed on statute of limitations grounds a number of discrimination claims in the long-running suit brought by a group of Non-Liturgical Protestant chaplains and their certifying agencies against the U.S. Navy. In In re Navy Chaplaincy, (D DC, Sept. 24, 2014), the court rejected various theories put forward by plaintiffs who argued that the suit was still timely.
