UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION GENORA L. GREENE, Plaintiff, v. MEGAN J. BRENNAN, JEANETTE POWELL, and UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE GREAT LAKES AREA AGENCY, Case Number 15-12747 Honorable David M. Lawson Magistrate Judge Anthony P. Patti Defendants. ____________________________________/ ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION, OVERRULING PLAINTIFF’S OBJECTIONS, GRANTING DEFENDANTS’ MOTION TO DISMISS, AND DISMISSING CASE Plaintiff Genora Greene filed a complaint alleging that the defendants violated her rights under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq., by harassing her, retaliating against her, and discriminating against her on the basis of race and gender during the month that she was employed by the United States Post Office in the summer of 2014. Greene initially represented herself, although an attorney has filed an appearance on her behalf. The Court referred this case to Magistrate Judge Anthony P. Patti for pretrial management. Thereafter, the defendants filed a motion to dismiss under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6). The parties have agreed to the dismissal of defendants Powell and the United States Postal Service Great Lakes Area Agency. Judge Patti filed a report on April 24, 2017 recommending that the motion be granted and the case dismissed because Greene did not file her Equal Employment Opportunity complaint with the EEO office on time, and a five-day presumptive period for receipt of the right-to-sue notice did not extend that filing date. Greene filed a timely objection to the magistrate judge’s report, to which defendant Brennan responded, and the matter is now before the Court.
