S&C Litigators Author Law360 Article on Important Employment Bias Case

S&C litigation partner Ann-Elizabeth Ostrager, together with associates Jacob Singer and Madeleine Bruml, co-authored an article in Law360 on an employment case that could have ramifications for bias cases brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

Now pending before the Supreme Court in Peterson v.
