Hotline: Mehri & Skalet may join in class action suit

The civil rights law firm Mehri & Skalet has suggested it may join with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in a class action suit against the US ad industry.

The firm released a study this week that claimed US ad agencies are institutionally racist and that African Americans are not only paid less than their white counterparts but are significantly under-represented in the industry.
