Asked 3 months ago - Concord, NHFlag
I'm taking a company to court in Concord , NH . There is a second party to the suit that I have called " a material aspect " of the civil action . While researching local court rules and the law , I came across something called the 100 mile rule . The second party resides in a location that is at least 100 miles from where the court is located . I have two choices then ? File in a district court that is closer to the second party , or file a separate lawsuit against the second party while citing the information from the first lawsuit ? This is a lawsuit involving employment , civil rights on the job ( race ) , and harassment / stalking / threats after being fired for taking the complaints to HR and VP of company .

First, you should talk to an employment rights atty before filing anything in court or with the EEOC. If suit is brought, I think you would likely want to have all defts in the same case so they can point at each other, so that you dont have to be deposed separately in 2 different cases, etc.
