North Hudson Regional Fire & Rescue v. NAACP

Petition for certiorari denied on June 11, 2012

Linked with:

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-1247 3d Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether the strong-basis-in-evidence standard established in Ricci v. DeStefano provides a safe-haven defense to an employer’s use of a residency requirement which causes a disparate impact to African Americans, when elimination of the residency requirement creates a strong basis in evidence of disparate treatment liability to Hispanics; and (2) whether, where residency requirements in largely African-American jurisdictions are required by the federal government, the decision below, which struck down the residency requirement in a predominantly Hispanic jurisdiction, unlawfully elevates the importance of a disparate impact claim by African-Americans over a disparate treatment claim by Hispanics under Title VII.
