On April 11, 1995, a black job applicant filed a lawsuit against the Sheriff of Cook County in the U.S. District Court for the District of Northern Illinois. The plaintiff, represented by private counsel, alleged that the defendant discriminated against him and "other black persons" on the basis of race and color in connection with the hiring of correctional officers. Specifically, the plaintiff claimed that the defendant had hired a disproportionate number of white and Hispanic applicants and had failed and refused to hire the plaintiff and other black persons as correctional officers in proportion to their representation in the pool of persons certified for employment.

On January 10, 1996, the Court (Judge James B. Zagel) denied the plaintiff's motion for class certification on the ground that the plaintiff had claims atypical of the class and would therefore be an inadequate class representative. On Aprial 11, 1996, the plaintiff filed his Amended Complaint named another applicant as an additional plaintiff.

However, on July 22, 1996, the Court (Judge Zagel) ruled that the other plaintiff could not intervene as class representative because she had failed to exhausted her administrative remedies by not filing a charge of discrimination with the EEOC.

On March 16, 1998, the Court entered judgment in favor of defendant and against plaintiff.

CERTIFIED copy of Order from the 7th Circuit. It is ordered that this appeal is Dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Generally, an appeal may not be taken in a civil case until a final judgment disposing of all claims against all parties is entered on the District's Court's civil docket pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 58. See Cleaver v. Elias, 852 F.2d 266 (7th Cir. 1988). The District Court did not enter a Rule 58 judgment in the present case. While the court dismissed one plaintiff from the action, the action continues in the District Court. Therefore, this appeal is premature. Appellant may appeal at the end of the case or upon entry of a partial judgment in compliance with Rule 54(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. (96−3506) (eav) (Entered: 01/15/1997)
