This chapter describes the testimony of defendant Theron Lynd, in which he denied that his decisions were influenced by an applicant’s race. The government also put Lynd on the stand to see whether they could obtain any useful admissions. But all that they got was a litany of his problems: he was overworked and underpaid. Thus, they would have to rely on the witnesses they had already produced.
