Footnote 193

See Stallworth et al., supra note 101, at 37 (reporting an estimated cost of more than $96,000 to defend an individual, non-class-action, discrimination lawsuit). One study found that, on average, the cost of "a seriously contested employment discrimination case is $130,000." Ross, supra note 112, at 183. In New York City, I believe, $150,000 would amount to a more realistic figure.
