EEO and "Me Too"

Employment attorney Michael Maslanka on "me too" evidence of discrimination. An excerpt:

Courts continue to confront whether to admit “me, too” evidence in discrimination trials. Me-too evidence is when the plaintiff seeks to parade before the jury a bunch of witnesses who claim that the defendant discriminated against them, as well. The appeal for plaintiff’s lawyers is the ability to argue, "Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
