Frank C. Morris, Jr., a Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Employee Benefits practices, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in Business Insurance, in “EEOC Likely to Exercise Restraint on Litigation,” by Judy Greenwald.

Following is an excerpt:

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which is likely to soon have a 3-2 Republican majority, is expected to change its processes and policies to reflect a more pro-business stance under the Trump administration, experts say. …

Along with this, observers expect EEOC commissioners to take more control over litigation from its field offices.

The commissioners and the new general counsel “will exercise greater control” and probably more restraint with respect “to particularly novel or overly aggressive” legal theories, said Frank C. Morris Jr., a member of law firm Epstein Becker Green L.L.P. in Washington.
