Correction: The article “Uncertain Justice: Litigating Claims of Employment Discrimination in the Contemporary U.S.”in Vol. 19, no. 2 (2008) of Researching Law incorrectly attributed a quote on page 10, top of column 2 to Judge Bernice Donald. The statement concerning a “vastly different” view of what evidence supports summary judgment was actually made by the Hon. Miriam Shearing. We regret the error.
