Supreme Court Responds To Our 2 Appeals For Relief from Transgender Harrassment

Public Advocate president Eugene Delgaudio responded to the Supreme Court posting of Orders today:

"This morning, the Supreme Court granted cert in the Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC case. Thank you.

The Supreme Court agreed to decide whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment against transgender people based on 1) their status as transgender or 2) sex stereotyping under Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins.

Public Advocate, with others, filed an amicus brief in support of the petition on August 23, 2018.

The brief is posted here. (Three other amicus briefs were filed urging the court to take the case -- Jewish Coalition for Religious Liberty, Foundation for Moral Law, and a brief filed by about a dozen states, led by Nebraska.

Public Advocate will file an amicus merits brief June 13. "

Delgaudio said:

"Also this morning, the Supreme Court granted cert in the Altitude Express v. Zarda case.

The issue to be decided is whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (which prohibits employment discrimination "because of ... sex") encompasses discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Public Advocate filed an amicus brief in this case on July 2, 2018 -- the only amicus brief filed in support the petition being granted. That brief is posted here.

Public Advocate will file an amicus merits brief June 13. "
