Whether the American Sociological Association (ASA) "missed an opportunity to advance sound scientific methods and opinions in litigation when it failed to scrutinize the content of, and method behind, Dr. Bielby’s case-specific claims in the Wal-Mart case" is a contested proposition. Rather than pick a side, I instead urge interested readers to assess the two recent and competing papers. Gregory Mitchell (UVa) et al.'s paper criticizing the ASA is found here; Laura Beth Nielson (Northwestern) et al.'s rebuttal paper here. Comments welcome.
