Two trends in the area of employment discrimination law continued during the 1991 survey period. First, there was a continuation of an overall decrease in the number of cases decided. Second, there was a continuation of the trend toward an increased number of age discrimination claims. The overall decline in the number of cases will most likely change dramatically as a result of passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1991. Nevertheless, both the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and the United States Supreme Court handed down a number of important decisions addressing a variety of substantive, procedural, and remedial issues.
