[IPAC-List] Question about local labor area calculations

We use a zip code analysis when we identify a local labor area for our affirmative action plans for a client. Our software tool only includes the counties from which 78% of the population for a particular employer reside, starting with the most populous until 78% is reached. We believe the 78% cutoff is based on a court case. Unfortunately, no one recalls which court case might have suggested that percentage.

Does anyone know during which court case it was ruled that counties from which 78% of the employee population reside should be considered for the local labor area calculations?

Any assistance you can provide would be gratefully appreciated.
