: Historically, the FCHR
has had a slight preference for complainant’s who are under the age of 48.
Evidenced by the disparity of its 13% rate and its 10% rate [for 'cause' determinations] between the two age groups.
: Despite its preference for younger litigants, the FCHR still maintains a practice of rendering no cause determinations at a high rate.
the cutoff age of 48 was chosen for two reasons.
1. It’s the average age of FCHR litigants (see here)
2. It’s the median age for FCHR litigants.
these records come from a subset of all complaints.
Reason: complainant's don't always indicate their age when filing FCHR complaints (see disclaimer).
Congratulations! You're now booked up
on how often the FCHR
' determinations for people in these two distinct age groups!
Keep this in mind while you litigate your civil rights case in Florida. Also, keep in mind the FCHR's statutory ability to accept bribes
Plus - at all times - keep the 7th Amendment
of the US Constitution (your right to a trial-by-jury
) in mind.
As always, please get the justice you deserve.
