Description

This ethics essay is the only published case history of a discrimination suit against a law firm. Ezold v. Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen, was the first sex discrimination case to go to trial against any professional partnership. The article provides a rich study of the case behind the case.Drawing from litigation filings, contemporary news accounts, and interviews with all the major participants and their lawyers, the account offers a rare portrait of the complex procedural, substantive, and personal considerations that shape legal actions. Because the case so clearly illustrates that there were no clear villains or victims - the plaintiff won in the trial court, and lost in the court of appeals, it is an ideal supplement to a class on trial advocacy, civil procedure, employment discrimination, labor law or women and the law.show more
