The Situation

NERA was hired by a major national car rental company to assist in its defense of a charge of statewide race discrimination in pay, promotion, and hiring.

NERA's Role

NERA's analysis showed that plaintiffs' expert's claim that there was statistical evidence of racial disparities was a statistical illusion caused by failure to take into account the particulars of defendant's pay and personnel practices.

The Result

The case was dismissed.
