Pay discrimination lawsuit concludes with Univ. of Denver School of Law agreeing to consent decree

The University of Denver School of Law has settled a pay discrimination lawsuit with seven full-time female law profs by way of an EEOC consent decree. The settlement, which includes a $2.66 million monetary award, was announced Thursday. The law profs will receive back pay, compensatory damages and compensation increases stemming from an equal pay lawsuit brought in 2016 by the EEOC. Prior to the suit, the average salary of full-time female professors at the University of Denver School of Law was about $20,000 less than that of full-time male professors.
