Season III, Episode 3: Does Title VII’s Ban on Sex Discrimination Extend to Sexual Orientation Discrimination?

Show Description

     Happy Halloween from the Legal Ease. On today’s episode, Willie and Joe have Professor Bill Corbett from LSU’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center to discuss recent appellate court decisions dealing with whether Title VII’s ban on sexual discrimination extends to cases involving allegations of sexual orientation discrimination. We unpack the 7th circuit’s analysis of “sex” from Hively v. Ivy Tech Cmty. Coll. of Ind. Additionally, we have 3L Mac Zentner on the show to discuss his upcoming article on the constitutionality of Louisiana’s anti-bigamy law in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. Finally, we have 3L Terrell Jordan in the studio for his segment C’Mon Judge where we discuss haunted house case law and whether the presence of ghosts should be sufficient grounds for rescinding a sale. For this episode, we have provided some interactive show notes for listeners who want to go a little further. The show notes below correspond to the various segments.
