The Washington University School of Law in St. Louis has announced a National Science Foundation award to support an empirical research project to collect and analyze data on federal court litigation brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) over a 10 year period.
The two-year grant was awarded to Professors Pauline T. Kim, Andrew D. Martin, and Margo Schlanger for their project titled, “The Litigation Process in Government-Initiated Employment Discrimination Suits.” The research is a project of the school’s Center for Empirical Research in the Law (CERL) in collaboration with the Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse.
According to the release, for the first time, the data generated will permit systemic analysis of the EEOC’s enforcement activities and outcomes in the courts.
