Indiana firing of lesbian teacher will test a gender-based argument in court with existing law.


Lambda Legal has written up a case of a community college teacher (Kim Hively) in Indiana fired after being seen kissing her girlfriend, as a way to cover LGBT people or “behavior” under more general Federal law protections based on gender itself.

  

Gergory T. Nevins at Lambda Legal gives a detailed interview here.  

Of course, it can be harder now to get a case before SCOTUS.
