•Ricci v. DeStefano (Sup. Ct. 2009) concerning the right of an employer to postpone promotions based upon test results having a disparate impact and Lewis v. City of Chicago (Sup. Ct. 2010) dealing with the timeliness of challenges to the use of previously administered test scores which have a disparate impact on protected groups.
