Following up on my post on the subject, I had the opportunity to speak with Colin O’Keefe of LXBN regarding Nelson v. Knight, the case where the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that a dentist was not wrong in firing his assistant for being irresistible. In the interview, I explain the basics of the case and why I think the Court erred in its ruling.

    Could their be another issue besides gender discrimination in this case? Say it were given another chance, I’m just thinking there had to be another issue except just the one.

    Sure, Mary, anything is possible and in lawsuits about discrimination, the victim can never truly know all the motivations that play a role. But, sure, as I read this case, gender was a central issue.
