As noted in a SeyfarthShaw blog,
In EEOC v. DolGenCorp, LLC d/b/a Dollar General, No. 13-CV-4307 (N.D. Ill. May 5, 2015), Judge Andrea R. Wood of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois decided several discovery issues that have become increasingly common in EEOC-initiated disparate impact litigation. In contrast with other recent decisions by other district courts, Judge Wood decided most of these issues in the EEOC’s favor.
