Business has won two important cases in the U.S. Supreme Court in recent days.
Today, the court ruled
in favor of white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., who claimed they had been unfairly denied promotions due to their
race. The city was wrong to toss out a promotion exam because too few Hispanics and African-Americans would have been bumped
up based on the results, the court said.
On Thursday, the court
ruled that older workers must prove that no factors in addition to their age were issues in layoffs or demotions. The
decision is expected to make age-discrimination suits much more difficult to win.
Both were 5-4 decisions, with Anthony Kennedy providing the key vote.
How do you feel about the decisions?
