Judge Sotomayor’s resume is summarized by CNN and her most notable opinions are compiled by the New York Times. Judge Sotomayor’s most significant employment-related decision came in Ricci v. DeStefano which is now before the United States Supreme Court. Ricci  is a discrimination case brought by white firefighters after the city threw out results of a promotion exam because too few minorities scored high enough.   The appellate court allowed the city to disregard the test results that had a disparate impact on minorities analyzing the role of Uniform Employee Selection Guidelines on employer testing procedures and results. The case has important implications for any employer that uses testing as part of its employment and promotion practices. The Connecticut Employment Law Blog has followed the case since it was initially decided.
