A March 17, 2008 Findlaw publication ran an interesting story entitled White News Anchor Let Go for Performance, Not Color which is about a discrimination case brought by a white news anchor after he was replaced by a black newscaster. Although the news station admitted that it used subjective criteria in deciding to terminate the plaintiff, the plaintiff was unable to show that criteria was a pretext for racial discrimination.
The case is Hicks v. KNTV Television, __Cal. App. 4th __ (6th App. Dist. March 5, 2008).
