The Washington Post reported Apr. 27: "Sodexho Inc., the Gaithersburg-based food and facilities-management company, agreed Wednesday to pay $80 million to settle a lawsuit that claimed it systematically denied promotions to 3,400 black mid-level managers."
On Steve Sailer's website, he published a very interesting reader observation on this lawsuit (scroll to end of article): "Well, I think I know of the next company lead attorney [and white man] Kerry Alan Scanlon can target: his own law firm, Kaye Scholer, whose numbers are similar to Sodexho's! I just clicked on all their attorneys, about half of whom had pictures on their law fim web pages and half of whom did not. Of the 102 Kaye Scholer attorneys who have photos, guess how many are black? Answer: same as the number of 188 top jobs held at Sodexho, whom Kaye Scholer just successfully sued for their lack of African-Americans in top jobs. Zero." -- John H. Smith III, armed services, Wiesbaden, Germany
This is also a good example (scroll) of a case that has no business being a class action.Posted by Walter Olson at July 13, 2005 09:45 PM
