The Supreme Court has been making history in recent years. It has upended numerous leftist holy grails, from abortion to affirmative action. The decisions this conservative-leaning court has issued will have dramatic effects on the country years from now.
But the left hasn’t stopped trying to use the court to bully Americans into obeying their wild demands.
A female police officer, who served in a demanding, dangerous job, was transferred to another unit. She claimed the department broke the Civil Rights Act of 1964, despite a lower court ruling against her.
President Joe Biden took her side and now, the highest court in the land will decide if gender trumps merit.
From The Epoch Times:
The Supreme Court will hear the case of a Missouri police sergeant who claims illegal discrimination was behind unfavorable employment decisions made against her.
Jatonya Clayborn Muldrow of the St. Louis Police Department claims she was forced out of the intelligence unit, transferred to a different job, and denied a requested transfer because she is a woman.
In other words, she claims that after serving in a high-level capacity, she was placed in a dead-end job because of her sex.
Muldrow served in a dangerous, high-stress division within the St. Louis Police Department. She claims, though, she was transferred from that position to another one because she was a woman. When she demanded another position in another department, she was denied.
Naturally, she accused the department of gender discrimination. Must be nice to be a liberal woman and blame all your setbacks on gender, eh? If a man had been transferred, he’d just have to suck it up, right?
But Muldrow, without any evidence to prove it, claimed the department broke the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when they transferred her. The problem is, of course, that the law doesn’t prevent employers from transferring someone from one department to another.
It is illegal to deny someone work or proper pay because of their gender or race. But the law says nothing about transferring someone, while still paying them the same amount (which was the case with Muldrow).
If the court rules in favor of this woman, it will strike a huge blow against police departments across the nation.
Police are already heavily crippled by nonsensical restrictions put into place by progressive lawmakers and activist judges — but if SCOTUS rules against the SLPD, expect every police department to be forced to give jobs to unqualified people, out of fear of being sued.
- The Supreme Court will hear a case concerning a policewoman suing the SLPD.
- Muldrow claims she was transferred from her department because she was a woman.
- The Civil Rights Act of 1964 bans denial of employment or pay over gender, but not transfers.
