Court seems split on doctor's discrimination suit

The Miami Herald / Associated Press, April 25, 2013

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court seemed split Wednesday over whether a doctor's discrimination lawsuit against a Texas medical center should be upheld. Listening to the last arguments of the term, justices heard an appeal from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, which wants a discrimination lawsuit won by Dr. Naiel Nassar thrown out. Nassar left in 2006 after complaining of harassment, but Parkland Hospital withdrew its job offer after one of his former supervisors opposed it. Nassar sued, saying the medical center retaliated against him for his discrimination complaints by encouraging Parkland to take away his job offer. A jury awarded him more than $3 million in damages.
