Discrimination claim at Human Services is denied class certification

Judge Henry Saad, who never met a consumer or civil rights claim he liked, authored an opinion reversing the lower court in Duskin v. Department of Human Services.  The trial judge had granted class action status to male minority employees of the Department who claimed that they were denied promotions to supervisory or management positions as a result of a "culture of discrimination."  The opinion ruled that matters of promotion at the Department over the six years of alleged discrimination were too complicated for treatment as a class action, particularly since it involved "various racial and ethnic groups and both male and female job candidates."
