Lawsuit: Race-based request sidelined Michigan nurse

146 posts in this topic

no one ever wins except lawyers dude

I think the typical settlement charge is like 50% + fees. If they each got $10k then the lawyers made 20-30k and the nurses got $10-20 total. Lawyers win but hardly the payday they were looking for.

I'm also guessing that these nurses will never ever be fired.

Since Nazis also hate Jews, wonder if he asked about that also? Do Muslims ask that men and Jews not touch their wives? Do Michigan hospitals deal with this a lot with the high population of Muslims. Just wondering.

why didn't the hospital take this to court if it was surely going to be ruled in their favor and dismiss them of any wrongdoing

that's how dumb that argument is. basically anyone will see this as a win to fit their own bias.

Are you really that stupid?

Companies settle lawsuits like this all the time for one reason. That reason is to just make it and the negative publicity go away. In addition, the amount if the settlement (which is probably relatively small) is probably less than the actual costs of going to court.

Well, the reason I asked was to gauge whether the hospitals routinely get these requests from others having to do with Jews or women and such. If they are used to doing this crap for one group, as wrong as it is, you can almost see the bridge to doing someone else wrong, all for the sake of wrongful accomodation.

Have any men or Jewish folks also sued? Will this make hospitals change the rules back to where "you get what you get"?

you saw what I was responding to right? you read the part where I said it was a dumb argument in order to make a point?

I said that it was dumb 90 percent of cases never go to court for that very reason. not because they didn't think they would win.

Side note: Somehow madhatter, by far the most belligerent poster in the tinderbox as far as unwarranted insults go (well aside from YML), never gets called out on "lowbrow tactics". I wonder why...

Sex is a much more protected issue than race in instances like these. If your wife wants a female gynecologist there is never going to be a lawsuit over it.

I don't actually care since shitting up threads with insults is your gimmick and everything and I wouldn't to take that away from you

Most of the whining is done on the rightwing side of things while they don't have a problem when one of their own does it
