Marriage equality heads into Arizona lawbooks, but voters still have last word (again)

Marriage equality heads into Arizona lawbooks, but voters still have last word (again)

A new law proposed by 13 co-sponsors will put marriage equality into Arizona lawbooks – provided voters repeal the unconstitutional 2008 voter-enacted amendment. House Bill 2117 repeals a 1996 statute banning same-sex marriage.

The legislative-passed language was bolstered by Proposition 102, which amended the state constitution to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

The conundrum is that voters changed the Arizona constitution and the constitution requires a people's vote to be changed.Kaine Fisher, partner and director of Family Law for the Rose Law Group, says that the state statute can't become effective unless voters reverse their position on marriage equality.

Does Saks Have the Legal Right to Fire a Transgender Employee?

Does Saks Have the Legal Right to Fire a Transgender Employee?

A former employee of Saks & Co. is taking the luxury retail store to court in Texas, claiming that she was discriminated against for being transgender.

Leyth Jamal says she was belittled by coworkers, forced to use the men’s room and repeatedly referred to by male pronouns (he and him) before ultimately being fired. The company responded in late December with a motion for the federal court to dismiss the case. In it, Saks’ lawyers don’t spend much time on any specific claims about mistreatment, instead arguing that transgender people simply aren’t protected by federal non-discrimination laws. Read more »

Charlotte Diocese Under Fire for Terminating Gay Teacher

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, today condemned another Catholic school firing of an LGBT employee as evidence of the church’s continuing efforts to keep workers in the closet.

Charlotte-area teacher Lonnie Billiard was fired from Charlotte Catholic High School after announcing on his personal Facebook page last fall that he planned to marry his partner. Billiard had been a teacher at the school for 15 years, and continued working there as a long-term substitute after he retired in 2012. Read more »
