Doe v. The College of N.J.

In Doe v. The College of N.J., the Third Circuit confronted a unique issue: whether the plaintiff should be permitted to proceed anonymously with her discrimination claim. She alleged her employer discriminated based on her gender, national origin, and pregnancy. The Court agreed with the plaintiff that the trial court’s order denying her permission to proceed anonymously was immediately appealable. However, the Court held that the plaintiff failed to establish that her interest in anonymity outweighed the public’s interest in open judicial proceedings.
