Survey Article


The employment law docket of the Eleventh Circuit last year was a reflection of the general state of employment-related litigation in all but one respect. It included a large number of decisions, many of which turned on complicated procedural issues arising out of trial practice before juries. On the other hand, as in previous years the court of appeals published no opinion concerning a disability claim under the Americans With Disabilities Act of, 1990. These are sure to come.

Consistent with the tradition of past articles on this topic, this survey does not attempt to include all opinions that touch on employment discrimination practice. Instead, this survey will focus on significant decisions handed down by the United States Supreme Court and the Eleventh Circuit in this area.
