Walter E. Washington, et al., Petitioners, v. Alfred E. Davis, et al., Respondents. Supreme Court of the United States, No. 74-1492, on Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit; Motion for Leave to File Brief as Amicus Curiae and Brief Amicus Curiae for Educational Testing Service.
Willens, Howard P.; And Others
This brief, filed by Educational Testing Service (ETS), a non-profit educational corporation, deals with whether Test 21, a test of verbal ability developed by the U.S. Civil Service Commission and used by the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia to select police recruits, is sufficiently job-related to be legally permissible in selecting potential employees. As friend of the court, ETS presents a framework that utilizes technical evidence of test validity in an appropriate balance with the analytical judgments about fairness and rationality needed to implement properly the concept of job-relatedness under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
