Was the Cause of Action Dismissed As the Statute of Limitations Had Run Beyond the 180 Days Period
In Milano v. Moldmaster, Inc., 703 So. 2d 1093 (Fla. 4th DCA 1997), the claimant filed a complaint with the Commission on April 8, 1994, after being fired from her job.
The Commission did not issue a reasonable cause determination within 180 days. More than one year after the end of that 180-day period, Milano filed a civil action against her employer.
The trial court ruled that the statute of limitations had run and dismissed the cause of action. See id. at 1093.
