Unanimous Supreme Court Opens Door to More Anti-DEI Lawsuits


Recommended Posts


In a unanimous decision, the United States Supreme Court has significantly opened the possibility of increased anti-DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion ideology) lawsuits, thanks to the establishment of a new standard of violations, “that any harm—whether significant or insignificant—satisfies Title VII” of the Civil Rights Act.

Muldrow v. City of St. Louis, the case in question, concerned whether or not police officer Jatonya Muldrow’s transfer to another division — allegedly because of her sex — represented a violation of Title VII as discrimination based on “race, color, religion, sex, or national origin” related to “compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges.”

In the majority and concurring opinions, the justices used similar language to characterize the light standard required to consider Muldrow’s transfer a violation of Title VII. Justice Elena Kagan noted that, “to make out a Title VII discrimination claim, a transferee must show some harm respecting an identifiable term or condition of employment. What the transferee does not have to show, according to the relevant text, is that the harm incurred was ‘significant.’”

Justice Kavanaugh espoused a similar sentiment in his concurring opinion, declaring that “No court has adopted a some-harm requirement, and no party or amicus advocated that requirement to this Court. More to the point, the text of Title VII does not require a separate showing of some harm. The discrimination is harm.”

Gosh I wonder Why these law School Graduates are Soooo Happy?


While DEI is not specifically mentioned in the opinions, the new standard established by the court would very likely make it easier for anti-DEI lawsuits to be filed on grounds of Title VII violation.

I think I may have found an answer.

OTOH If you hospital, medical counseling firm, has been recommending transgender theory, or  are the parent that went on tv singing the praises....
