Court Says Civil Rights Law Prohibits Discrimination Of LGBT

A federal appeals court in Chicago has ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination. The decision will set up a likely battle before the Supreme Court, as gay rights advocates fight to broaden the scope of the 53-year-old law. That particular court is relatively conservative, with five of the eight judges appointed by Republican presidents, which makes the finding all the more notable. One of the judges wrote that changing norms call for a change in interpretation of the Civil Rights Act.
