Case Summary

M&S represents African American and Asian American employees in GS grades 13-15 in a proposed class action lawsuit against NASA alleging discrimination in performance appraisal ratings that result in lower compensation and lesser promotion opportunities for members of those two racial groups. The firm and co-counsel filed a motion for class certification in May 2014, on which the Administrative Judge has not yet ruled. The two proposed classes encompass over 2,000 employees.
