Plaintiff-appellant Mary Flaherty appeals from a summary judgment entered in favor of defendant-appellee Metromail Corporation ("Metromail"), and its alleged successors in interest, defendants-appellees Experian Corporation, Experian Information Solutions, Inc., and Experian Holdings, Inc. (collectively "Experian"), in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Buchwald, J.). The action giving rise to this appeal was instituted by Flaherty to recover damages arising from her constructive discharge from employment as a consequence of gender and age discrimination and was dismissed by the district court as time-barred. The district court identified the date of accrual of Flaherty's claim as the point in time when Flaherty was given definite notice of her impending termination. The district court concluded that this point was reached, at the latest, on the date Flaherty received a warning letter following a series of allegedly discriminatory acts on the part of supervisory personnel at Metromail.
