ABSTRACT
This article reports that the U.S. Supreme Court appears likely to deal with an unusually sparse docket of liability-related cases in its current term. The case, which asks whether the Age Discrimination in Employment Act allows disparate-impact claims, began when Jesse Jackson adopted a new pay policy for public safety officers that, when compared with its previous policy, gave proportionately larger raises to employees with five or fewer years of service than it did to officers with more seniority. A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held that the ADEA does not allow a disparate-impact suit. A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held for Birmingham.
