WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court will consider whether to keep alive the largest job discrimination case in U.S. history, a lawsuit against Wal-Mart that grew from a half-dozen women to a class action that could involve billions of dollars for more than a half million female workers.
PHOENIX (AP) — The Justice Department sued the nation's self-proclaimed “toughest sheriff” on Thursday, calling Joe Arpaio's defiance of an investigation into his office's alleged discrimination against Hispanics “unprecedented.”
GRAND FORKS (AP) — A Grand Forks man who worked construction for the North Dakota Department of Transportation says he was fired because he’s Hispanic. The agency denies the claim.

“I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member.”
That familiar one-liner has been attributed over the years to the late Groucho Marx, but in light of the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision this week in the case of Christian Legal Society vs. Martinez (UC Hastings), the sentiment it contains may have some contemporary legal relevance.

In my April 8 letter to the editor, I wrote that I was tickled pink over the North Dakota House’s rejection of Senate Bill 2278 and that I was in favor of discrimination and happy that the majority of our lawmakers did not use common sense in voting on that bill. I have learned that some people did not understand the sarcastic nature of my letter and took my words literally. I would like to make my position on this issue clear and clarify my meaning by dropping the sarcasm.
Congratulations to the North Dakota legislators who voted to kill SB 2278; the so-call gay discrimination bill. This bill had nothing to do with protecting homosexual people from discrimination. It had everything to do with legitimizing a lifestyle that is wrong, inappropriate and harmful.
The North Dakota Supreme Court has reversed a ruling in favor of fired North Dakota State sports information director George Ellis, sending the case back to the judge who awarded Ellis more than $250,000 in an age discrimination claim.
