Judge sends gender bias case against CIGNA to arbitration

National Law Journal

This article discusses Karp v. CIGNA Healthcare, Inc., a gender bias case against CIGNA Healthcare Inc. Littler attorney Dennis Brown, who was CIGNA’s lead lawyer in the case, provides commentary on the judge’s April 18, 2012 ruling on the case, stating that, "at its core the decision really was not quite so unusual or difficult because, once you determine, as Judge Saylor correctly did, that pattern-and-practice claims are not independent legal claims but are merely tools the federal courts have given to plaintiffs to prove discrimination, you're talking about a procedural right not a substantive one."
