EEOC v Freeman, ____F.Supp.2d ____(D. Maryland August 9, 2013) is an important case. In a well written decision, the court rejects the EEOC claim that an employer violated Title VII by refusing to hire a minority applicant after a criminal background check was performed.
This case contains an excellent review of disparate impact and was very critical of the statistical experts retained by the EEOC.
Law review commentary on this important issue would be most welcome.
