    In Lewis v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 2191 (2010), the Supreme Court addressed whether a group of black firefighter applicants had made a timely claim for racial discrimination. The applicants said the employer's practice of only interviewing those who scored 89 or higher on a written exam had a disparate impact on black applicants.
