The prototype, prepared for a symposium on teaching statistics to judges, presents Fisher's exact, chi-squared, and bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses in a hypothetical example of age discrimination litigation. The prototype also discusses odds ratios, expected values, and p-values. Eleven distinguished experts provide comments and reviews (Orley Ashenfelter, David W. Barnes, John M.
