Professor Belton discusses the story of the campaign that led to the Supreme Court's decision in Griggs v. Duke Power Co., a story in which he played a major role. His piece identifies the genesis of the disparate impact theory, discusses its subsequent dismantling, examines its revival in the Civil Rights Act of 1991, and comments upon its impact and future.
