Ind. Courts - 7th Circuit Confirms: Title VII Does Not Apply to Sexual Orientation Claims

From The National Law Review, this article by Debra Stegall. A few quotes:

In Kimberly Hively v. Ivy Tech Community College, the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit decided whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation. On July 28, 2016, the court held Hively failed to state a claim for sex discrimination under Title VII based solely on her sexual orientation, affirming the prior decision by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division. * * *

Hively petitioned the U. S. Court of Appeal for the Seventh Circuit for a hearing before all of the Seventh Circuit Judges. The en banc hearing was granted on October 11, 2016. En Banc Argument is scheduled for November 30, 2016. The EEOC was granted leave to participate in the oral argument, but must use some of Ms. Hively’s allotted time to do so.

Here is a list of ILB posts on Hively.
