Wal-Mart Commentary Roundup
After yesterday's decision, there have been a bunch of great editorials and commentary by Workplace Profs. Among them, this piece by Nancy Levit (UMKC) and Naomi Cahn (George Washington) in the Huffington Post. The NY Times Room for Debate hosted several great short pieces too. Suzette Malveaux (Catholic) on the backpay issue; Matt Bodie (SLU) on the Court's desire to get employment cases out of the courts; Ralph Richard Banks (Stanford) on group equality; John Elwood (advisor to the SCOTUS Litigation Clinic, Virginia) on why the decision was not surprising; Tanya Hernandez (Fordham) on Wal-Mart being too big to sue; Richard Primus (Michigan) on the Court's push away from a structural view of discrimination; and Melissa Hart (Colorado) on the Court's hostility to discrimination cases.
Nice work and congratulations to all!
