Fact #1: For cases involving a black plaintiff, 4% have resulted in a victory.

• This is meaningfully lower than the rate for non-black litigants (6%)
• However, it’s marginally higher than the global average (3%) (see "Note #1" [below]).

Fact #2: For cases involving a black plaintiff, 63% have resulted in a loss.

• This is noticeably higher than the rate for non-black litigants (56%)
• Plus, it’s tremendously higher than the global average (40%) (see "Note #1" [below]).

Fact #3: For cases involving a black plaintiff, 13% have resulted in an explicit settlement.

• This is lower than the rate for non-black litigants (17%).
• Plus, it’s significantly lower than the global average (25%) (see "Note #1" [below]).

Takeaway #1: Race has a significant impact on the outcome of a case.

• Black plaintiffs face worse legal outcomes than their non-black counterparts (worse probabilities for: victories, losses, settlements, and so on).

• Moreover, just the mere disclosure of one’s race has a major impact on case outcomes (compare “black” vs “all” while comparing “non-black” vs “all” -- second table [above]).

Note #1: the demographic characteristics for many litigants is unknown. Which is why the “all” row doesn’t quite measure up to the sum of the individual pieces (see tables [above]).

Additional: These numbers can be further analyzed by:

(a) case type;
(b) charge (eg, age, col, etc.);
(c) determination impact; (ie, 'cause' vs 'no cause')
(d) legal representation; (ie, 'with attorney' vs 'without attorney')
(e) retaliation impact (ie, 'with' vs 'without' [retaliation]); and
(f) year;

...POINTS & THINGS...

Congratulations! You're now booked up on how FCHR Case Outcomes vary based on the plaintiff's race!

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.

Sincerely,
