Asian Americans are victims of discrimination at Harvard and other Ivy Colleges

This is a very interesting piece, No, Affirmative Action Has Not Made Asian-Americans the 'New Jews', by an academic expert, Jerome Karabel, arguing that Ivy League colleges are not unlawfully discriminating against Asian Americans as alleged in a currently pending lawsuit in Boston. I disagree with it, but it is worth reading.

CEO of Michigan Municipal League accused of harassment by current, former staffers

NachtLaw represents several current and former employees of the Michigan Municipal League involved in this story.

The Deck is Stacked Against Plaintiffs in Employment Cases - But the Fight Goes On

The U.S. Supreme Court recently decided a case that attracted little attention. On the surface, CRST Van Expedited, Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission[i] (5/19/16) was about the definition of a "prevailing party" for purposes of awarding attorney fees. The Court unanimously held that a defendant does not need to obtain a favorable judgment "on the merits" in order to be awarded attorney fees.

The Unacceptability of Bigotry

I make it a point not to advocate for particular political positions or to take positions on questions of public policy that are not directly related to the interest of my clients, at least when I am writing in my capacity as the shareholder of a law firm. Recent events however, have led me to believe that it would be irresponsible to stay quiet in light of public discourse which seems to encourage bigotry. In these pages I do not advocate for or against a particular policy concerning immigration. However, as a law firm that fights against discrimination, I must speak out against the casual labeling of Mexican-Americans as having tendencies towards criminal conduct, by one presidential candidate.
