    “Women miners are out there, they were applying at Mach Mines, and they had a right to be considered on their qualifications and merits,” the agency said in a press release then.

    But that’s not the question before the Supreme Court today. Instead, the Court is hearing arguments on a seemingly arcane procedural issue in the case that could make it much easier for employers to get rid of such discrimination lawsuits. A victory for Mach Mining would be yet another hurdle for victims of employment discrimination, from a court that has in recent years erected several of them.​
