The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to review a reverse discrimination ruling by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over New York employers.
The 2nd Circuit had upheld a lower court’s decision that the city of New Haven, Conn., could refuse to certify the results of two fire department promotion exams because the city concluded the tests had a disparate impact on black candidates.
Seventeen white candidates, who would have been among those eligible for promotion because of their scores on the test, sued alleging reverse discrimination.
The Supreme Court will decide whether their lawsuit should be reinstated.
