Judge Posner Talks about Pending En Banc Case at #AALS2017

January 6th, 2017

During the AALS 2017 conference, Judge Posner appeared on a panel about Bill Eskridge’s work on legislation. Or, at least he phoned it in. Along with Judge Katzmann, Judge Posner spoke remotely by phone. On the panel were Justice Goodwin Liu and Judge Marsha S. Berzon.

During his remarks, Posner spoke about a pending en banc case, Hively v. Ivy Tech, which considers discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is prohibited by Title VII. Judge Posner repeatedly referred to it as the “lesbian case.” His comments were, well, surreal.


Update: Judge Posner offers a response in this post.
