Hammer v. UM case gains press recognition
In an earlier post, I described the ongoing litigation between Professor Hammer and the Univ. of Michigan. Prof. Hammer asserts that he was denied tenure and subjected to a hostile work environment on the basis of his sexual orientation. This lawsuit could shape the law, Jon Davidson (director of Lambda Legal) points out, in those states (like Michigan) that do not have a statute on the books prohibiting workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. See the Article in Bloomberg.com. Also, take a look at the earlier post where I mention that this "contract" theory of the case stems from the lack of other, statutory claims.
