Supreme Court to Review "Cat's Paw" Case

Tags:  (2010 Apr 29th)

The U.S. Supreme Court will review a "Cat's Paw" case: Staub v. Proctor Hosptial, Docket No. 09-400. At issue is whether or not an employer can be held liable for the bias of supervisors who did not have ultimate decision-making authority. The Law Memo has more detail about this case that also raises questions about discrimination against National Guard and Reserve members.
