Czarniecki v. City of Chicago, 09-1485

In a former police officer's suit against the City of Chicago, claiming that the City intentionally discriminated against him based on his national origin in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, district court's ruling that plaintiff's Title VII action was barred by claim preclusion because it arose out of the same set of operative facts as his earlier section 1983 case in which there was a final resolution in favor of the City, is affirmed where: 1) because both of plaintiff's federal claims and his new state-law claims are based on the same set of factual allegations as his section 1983 claim, res judicata bars his Title VII claim and his state-law claims; and 2) plaintiff's two other related appeals are dismissed as moot.
