Abstract In 1996, plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against the New York City Department of Education ("DOE")1 and the New York State Education Department (“SED”), alleging that the DOE and SED were violating Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as amended 42 U.S.C. § 2000e, et seq. ("Title VII") by requiring New York City public school teachers to pass the Liberal Arts and Sciences Test ("LAST") to keep or obtain permanent teaching positions. Specifically, plaintiffs alleged that the LAST had an unlawful disparate impact on African-American and Latino teachers who took the test.
