Oral Argument to Be Heard By Supreme Court Over Specifics of Title VII

Supreme Court Update

The 2019-20 term of the United States Supreme Court opens today.

On October 8th, the Court will heard an oral argument on a set of cases that could determine whether sexual orientation and gender identity are covered by Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  Courts and commentators are divided on the issue, which has been the subject of active litigation in multiple cases for several years.  This may be the most significant ruling of the Court in the area of employment law this term, and will be closely watched.

A decision could be issued before the end of the year; timing is to be determined by the Court.
