Well, today I came across some numbers in The Manpower Employment Blawg:
"Employers are better off in federal court, where they won 43% of the cases, versus only 37% in state court. In addition, the median federal award was 39% lower than the median state award ($164,925 versus $270,000)."Or taken from the employee's perspective... a better chance of winning and more money. No wonder employees are seeking out state courts!
