I just recently saw a news item
http://www.ohio.com/news/break_news/36663539.html about this case.
According to the article in the local paper, "A federal jury awarded 23
Akron firefighters nearly $2 million after finding that a 2004 test
Akron used for lieutenant and captain positions skewed against white
applicants for captain's rank and black candidates for lieutenant." The
article also goes on to note that the lieutenant's test also
discriminated against candidates over the age of 40.

Anyone have any further detail or information on this? And welcome to
the new list!
