Shocking treatment, retaliation against nurse with cancer alleged

In a case almost too shocking to comprehend, a veteran nurse is suing Kaiser hospitals over how the company dealt with her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. According to her complaint, Kaiser fired her after subjecting her to hostile mockery and took actions that directly put her health at risk.

Reservist says Best Buy wrongfully terminated him for training

Since at least the Civil War, the federal government has passed a number of laws intended to protect the rights of people who serve in our military -- including their right to return to their civilian jobs when their service is complete. Most recently Congress passed the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, or USERRA, in 1994. The law requires employers to reinstate veterans, military reservists, and federally-activated members of the National Guard to their jobs when they return from duty -- and that applies to reserve training, as well.

T.J. Simers calls foul on LA Times, sues for wrongful termination

Veteran sports columnist T.J. Simers has filed a shocker of a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Times. The 63-year-old writer had been writing three columns a week for the Times after working at the paper for more than two decades. Now, after what sound like serious breaches of journalistic ethics and a campaign of illegal retaliation, he is suing the paper for disability and age discrimination that, he claims, unfairly ended his career.

In 1968, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania passed a state constitutional amendment requiring all of its commissioned judges to retire at age 70. Surprisingly, that doesn’t mean the judges can’t continue to work, but it apparently does mean they don’t get paid as much. Last year, a group of judges challenged Pennsylvania’s mandatory retirement amendment as a form of age discrimination. They filed lawsuits claiming the law violated their rights under the Equal Protection clauses of the Pennsylvania and federal constitutions.
