Gay Pennsylvania Man's Gender Bias Lawsuit Reinstated
from The Philadelphia Inquirer
A federal appeals court has reinstated a gay western Pennsylvania man's lawsuit contending that co-workers who allegedly harassed him about his effeminate behavior discriminated against his gender, not his sexual orientation. The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the decision of a federal judge in the suit filed by Brian Prowel, of Penn Hills, against Wise Business Forms Inc. of Butler. His attorneys hailed the decision as important for workplace discrimination law. More

The Importance of Language Competency in Management
While language competency is very often mentioned in the requirements section of vacancy advertisement; it is the one competency that is almost always ignored by many. Often managers are appointed on the basis of qualifications and years of experience, and not on language capability and other soft skills such as communication and interpersonal skills, team player skills, ethics, ability to value diversity, responsiveness and willingness to change.

Who's Sitting on the Federal Bench
from The Washington Post
President Obama changed the ethnic makeup of the Supreme Court by choosing Sonia Sotomayor to be the first Hispanic justice. But her elevation reduced the number of Latina federal appeals court judges by one-third. More

Reviving Civil Rights
from The New York Times
Few parts of the federal government veered more radically off course in the Bush years than the Justice Department, including its vital civil rights division. Attorney General Eric Holder has made clear that he intends to put the division back on track. That will not be easy, but restoring the nation’s commitment to fairness in voting, employment, housing and other areas is one of the new administration’s most important challenges. More
