EEOC appeals loss in Detroit transgender case


As we knew it would, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has appealed the decision of Judge Sean Cox, who granted summary judgment to a Detroit-area funeral home chain in a transgender discrimination case. Here is my analysis of Judge Cox’s decision.

The case will go to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which hears appeals from federal courts in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee.

Needless to say, we will continue to follow it and will continue to keep you posted!
