    Answered . There are no good answers to any of your questions. Some employment discrimination cases drag on for years; others are promptly settled. Appeals are filed or not for many reasons and there is no predicting. Most appeals do not succeed, but there are no reliable percentages to cite. Every case is bounded by its own facts, and by the subjective and various factors of the methods of the attorneys, the judge, the evidence...

    You should consult with a local employment rights attorney to ask these questions with respect to a specific case.
