    In what the American Civil Liberties Union called the most important sex discrimination case since the Virginia Military Institute's male-only admissions policy was struck down, the Supreme Court today held that state government employers are not immune from lawsuits under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

    "Today, the Supreme Court recognized that when employers treat women as mothers first and workers second, or assume that men don't need time off to care for children or family members, they do both women and men a grave disservice," said Lenora Lapidus, Director of the ACLU Women's Right Project.

    GENDER discrimination. Get it?

    The SCOTUS is Extraordinary.
