As I read this lawsuit and posted about it, it was a good one, i.e., a bad one, i.e., the plaintiffs had a strong case for racial discrimination. Nah, just call it racism. And the EEOC came into it big time.
And today I learned that Wet Seal has settled the lawsuit: Clothing Chain Wet Seal Settles Lawsuit Charging It with Firing African-American Employees | NAACP LDF.
So does this mean it’s OK to resume shopping at Wet Seal? I don’t know. I’ve never shopped at Wet Seal.
But I certainly wouldn’t buy their stock. (That’s a double entendre.)
The plaintiffs are represented by NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF), as well as two law firms: Oakland, California’s Lewis, Feinberg, Lee, Renaker & Jackson, P.C. and Media, Pennsylvania’s Gallagher, Schoenfeld, Surkin, Chupein & DeMis, P.C. : another example of a collaboration between a non-profit law clinic and law firms.
