Return of The Quota King

Costco is the latest defendant in an employment-discrimination class action. Two items of interest here, probably not unrelated. First, part of the relief requested is for the company to “institute an affirmative-action policy to insure women receive an appropriate share of assistant- and general-manager positions”–i.e., a quota. Second, among the lawyers filing the lawsuit is none other than Bill Lann Lee, former “quota king” at the Justice Department’s civil rights division in the Clinton administration.
