Iowa Supreme Court reconsiders “Irresistible Employee” ruling

The Iowa Supreme Court will reconsider its ruling regarding whether it was unlawful sex discrimination for a dentist to fire his assistant because she was “irresistible” and because the dentist’s wife viewed the assistant as a threat to their marriage. We previously reviewed the case and the Iowa Supreme Court’s December 2012 ruling here. The Iowa Supreme Court is not requesting any additional briefing or oral argument and will issue a new ruling based on the written arguments already submitted to the court. Once that new ruling is in, we’ll let you know.
