The court granted defendant’s motion for summary judgment, finding that, since plaintiff first contacted her Equal Employment Opportunity counselor on April 3, 1997, any claims based on discriminatory acts that occurred before Feb. 18, 1997 are time-barred. The court added that plaintiff’s June 1996 appraisal and the events underlying her failure-to-promote claim are time-barred since they both took place before Feb. 18, 1997. The court further concluded that plaintiff’s claim that her June 1996 appraisal did not accurately reflect her job performance concerns a discrete act and therefore is time-barred.
