    This is lovely. I'd like to hear one of our "Business Uber Alles" types defend this shit.

    Personally..I rather have the government completely out of the mix.

    But if government is choosing sides..it should be on the side of labor. Which in this country, it's not.

    When someone is fired for being hot, there should be pictures.

    I think it goes without saying the wife is a nutcase.

    I also wonder what kind of pastor tells a guy to fire an employee because he can't control himself.

    The thing is, the termination was wrongful, and the court that decided against her was kind of nuts. Of course, it was all men on the court.

    This is not about a protected class in employment law because the facts fit that the dentist could have been homosexual with a partner and the assistant could have been attractive male.

    The 8-0 finding is conclusive. The plaintiff said the case was now over.

    It's over.
