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"?

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.


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

In general, corporations fight discriminatory lawsuits if they believe they can win, because the only thing worse for publicity than the existence of a discrimination-based lawsuit is losing or settling. Most everyone following this story is going to see the settlement as an admission of guilt. Walmart just fought a class action lawsuit and won over accusations that they treat female employees unfairly on a company-wide basis.


On the other hand, individuals/small groups settle in cases like these generally because they are pressured to settle by attorneys, especially if they're going to have trouble paying legal fees.


This makes me curious how many people who think the hospital settled to make it go away think MJ settled because he KNEW he was a baby rapist and paid the family to keep quiet.
