MEMORANDUM ACCOMPANYING ORDER GRANTING MOTION

TO MAKE COMPLAINT MORE DEFINITE AND CERTAIN

The parties herein at a March 31, 1995, pre-hearing conference discussed in detail Complainant Bartholomew R. Williams' ("Complainant"), complaint allegations.

At that time, I pointed out that the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission ("Commission"), does not have jurisdiction over those complaint allegations relating to Sections 100.18, 111.06, 111.06(1)(j), 111.36(1)(b), 230.83(1), 942.01, and 943.38(1)(b), Wis. Stats., as well as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, "the intentional torts of libel and slander", Section P.C. 2.04 of the Wisconsin Administrative Rules of the State of Wisconsin's Personnel Commission, and "applicable laws of the United States of America."

I thus ruled that the Commission only has jurisdiction over those complaint allegations relating to Sections 111.84(a) and 111.84(1)(e), Wis. Stats., and that the proceeding herein would be limited to these statutory references.

In order to better clarify the matters in dispute so that this matter can be more efficiently tried, and in the absence of any objections, I am hereby granting the Motion to Make More Definite and Certain.

Dated at Madison, Wisconsin this 25th day of April, 1995.
