Conquistadors & Catbert!

Image result for catbertCheck out this decision by Justice Beds here, which has these great lines:

  • It would be like hunting for and discovering the lost city of El Dorado only to find there was no gold there.
  • The contract is thus silent on the possibility that HR, in a bureaucratic maneuver worthy of the fictional Catbert,9 just sits on the employee’s request. [Footnote 9 -- Catbert has made his appearance a couple of times in employment cases. (See, e.g., Washington v. Illinois Dept. of Revenue (7th Cir. 2005) 420 F.3d 658, 662 [Catbert is a fictional cat and “the evil director of human resources” in the comic strip Dilbert].)]
