On Tuesday, June 30, the New Jersey Chapter of the Federalist Society is hosting Prof. Gail Heriot of the University Of San Diego School Of Law for a discussion of disparate impact litigation. Under disparate impact analysis, certain practices might be considered discriminatory if they have a disproportionate adverse impact on a protected class of persons, even without discriminatory intent. The expansion of disparate impact litigation could dramatically increase the number of discrimination lawsuits filed against businesses.
