18 Years, No Justice

Record #:
The case of Bazemore vs. Friday has not been settled after 18 years. The case is a discrimination suit filed by black employees of the NC Agricultural Extension Service over salary and promotion discrimination. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of the former employees, but a settlement has not been reached and the state is looking to appeal. Some speculate the state is waiting for the plaintiffs to give up or die as half of the members have already passed away.
