    The Supreme Court made a ruling on protection for people discussing sexual harrassment.

    Supreme Court: law bars sex harassment retaliation - Yahoo! News

    The Lady was basically fired for talking about what they ask her about. WHERE in the world do people get the idea they can get away with shit like this?

    The idiotic board that fired her. Why do sane people think they can just make shit up and fire people to cover scum? All they had to do was fire the harrassment guy.

    Oh, ok I read the link and wasn't sure if you were talking about Crawford, Hughes, or the board. Yeah, I agree that it's total BS. I'm glad this woman won her case.

    She worked there 30 years and then suddenly she's developed a drug abuse and embezzlement problem?!

    Sounds dubious.

    Now what might motivate such character assassination?

    If she can prove that she was sexually harrassed, and the school did nothing about it, she can sue the school system.


    How convenient that they had a handy "drug abuse" rumor to throw at her character, eh?

    Do that innuendo assault on anyone involved in a school system and those people suddenly become personae non grata. All thinking stops and the mob mentality goes into overdrive.

    I'm surprised they didn't charge her with molesting children, too.

    We live in a very sleazy world, folks.

    Crawford told the assistant human resources director that Hughes asked to see her breasts on numerous occasions, grabbed his genitals in front of her and once pulled her head toward his crotch


    seems they put the fox in the charge of the henhouse

    But that's what happens when someone's underling is actually investigating charges against his own superior. Not to mention the fact that often people, and corporations, do what they want until someone (the court) says no. That's one of the reasons these laws are so important.

    I like Souter's quote, though... "the law doesn't require some freakish rule". Bravo. :clap2:
