LGBT Discrimination Cases

Now LGBT supporters are seeking to see the same rights extended to existing civil rights law so that gay employees are protected from discrimination by their employer. They are hoping that the Supreme Court Justices will be the ones to finally make a ruling on this issue in their favor.

A New York federal appeals court heard arguments regarding one case where an employee claims she was fired because of her sexual orientation. Another case is asking the Supreme Court to take a look at theirs. Both cases are arguing over whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The federal law bans employment discrimination because of gender. They argue that the law should extend to sexual orientation.

Lawyer Joshua Matz, who has followed the issue closely on his law blog Take Care, believes the Supreme Court will take on the issue. He wrote, "It's a matter of national importance, affecting employees and employers from every walk of life."
