TRAC Reports has recently released its latest data on the trends of employment civil rights lawsuits. The decrease of civil rights lawsuits in the employment context is not surprising.
TRAC Reports states:
The latest available data from the federal courts show that during February 2013 the government reported 950 new employment civil rights filings. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse TRAC, this number is down 7.9 percent over the previous month when the number of filings of this type totaled 1,032, and has dropped 13.2 percent from its level one year ago see Table 1.
TRAC further states that the volume of civil rights matters filed in federal districts during February 2013 was 3.1 per every million persons in the US. Last year, that number of filings was 4.2.
