Discrimination Settlement

— Host Bob Edwards talks with NPR's Nina Totenberg about an unusual out-of-court settlement in a civil rights case that was scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court in January. Civil rights groups have agreed to pay a substantial portion of the settlement in a case which tests voluntary affirmative action... A white teacher sued the Piscataway, New Jersey school system for racial discrimination. The teacher was laid off while an equally qualified black teacher was kept on.
