Vaello-Carmona v. Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc., 13-1405

In this employment discrimination action, plaintiff-employee died and petitioner-appellants moved to substitute themselves as plaintiffs. The judgment of the district court ruling that plaintiff's employment discrimination claims against defendant were not inheritable and dismissing the case for failure to state a claim is vacated, where causes of action employment discrimination and employment disability discrimination are inheritable under Puerto Rico law.
