Gender Discrimination Hot Issue in New Jersey

Would you find it a bit odd if a woman had never been selected to referee a top-level men's high school basketball competition? That is the exact argument the Third Circuit refused to dismiss in a claim of gender discrimination brought in New Jersey.  The Plaintiff, Tamika Covington, alleges that despite being qualified, she has been repeatedly overlooked for high profile men's high school basketball games as part of a willful pattern of gender discrimination.  The Third Circuit cited to the fact that in light of the recent decision by the US Military to allow women to engage in combat, they could certainly handle the physical expectations of a men's high school basketball game.  A copy of the Complaint can be found here, and the Third Circuit's Opinion can be found here.

Workplace Email

It was recently reported that Harvard University took it upon itself to view the work emails of 16 residential deans as part of its investigation into a cheating scandal. The level of outrage at Harvard's investigation that this may conjure will depend entirely on the extent to which you believe employees have an expectation of privacy in a corporate email account.
