CASE ENTRY

O’Daniel v. Industrial Service Solutions

Louisiana woman makes “politically incorrect” statements on Facebook about a trans person she saw while clothes shopping, gets fired. Has she been discriminated against for being heterosexual, in violation of Title VII? Fifth Circuit: She has not because Title VII doesn’t cover sexual-orientation discrimination. Concurrence: “Title VII does not grant employees the right to make online rants about gender identity with impunity. I would stop there.” (NB: The Supreme Court will consider this question next term).
