100 Cities File SCOTUS Brief Supporting Gay Rights
CITIES URGING SUPREME COURT TO PROTECT LGBTQ WORKERS FROM DISCRIMINATION.
(CNN) – Cities across the country are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to protect LGBTQ rights.
Nearly 100 mayors signed a ‘friend of the court’ brief for three upcoming supreme court cases involving workplace discrimination.
The cases center on employees who were fired for their sexual orientation or gender identity.
The brief states in part, “local anti-discrimination laws promote the prosperity and vitality of American communities. Among other things, these laws enhance innovation and economic opportunities.”
Supreme Court justices are expected to hear the cases by October 8th.
