Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Roger B. Clegg
Theodore M. Shaw


The use of disparate impact analysis is growing very rapidly, and it is becoming the source of some controversy.  It holds, generally speaking, that a violation of certain federal statutes can be shown by the discriminatory effect of a policy, even in the absence of an intent to discriminate.  Earlier this week, the U.S Supreme Court agreed to hear the Mt. Holly case, which will examine the use of disparate impact analysis under the Federal Housing Act.  Disparate impact analysis is now being used in or proposed for use in employment, housing, lending, and many other contexts.  Our experts will describe and then debate the use of disparate impact analysis.


  • Mr. Roger Clegg, President and General Counsel, Center for Equal Opportunity
  • Prof. Theodore "Ted" M. Shaw, Professor of Professional Practice in Law, Columbia Law School

Call begins at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
