Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Accusing Kaplan of Racial Bias in Hiring

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the complaint in 2010. In a ruling issued on Monday, Judge Patricia A. Gaughan of the U.S. District Court in Cleveland dismissed the suit after concluding that the way in which an expert witness for the EEOC had identified black applicants was unscientific and unreliable.
