    I'll refer you to the law suit where the queer man sued Hooters because they refused him a job as a waitress... He lost on the basis that he would have been detrimental to the companies image! Detrimental the the companies image...sound familiar??? I will not embellish nor search the web for more examples...It's not worth the effort.

    By the way

    Your "legal prowess" overwelms me...

    I know, I know, you are the most intelligent person on this site. My appologies...

    Too bad you think that saying "werd" means that you've won the argument...

    I don't need to insult you. Your posts take care of that for me. And I agree with you- it isn't worth the effort.

    Yeah, it's apparent Jeff doesn't require an understanding of legal concepts to post in it! :ha:

    Sledge, sorry it took so long for me to get back on this......out of town!
    I agree that the media can make mountains out of mole hills, but Pac gave them the ammunition. If Pac had stayed out of trouble, the media would have nothing to work with.

    Here are some excerpts from a column penned by our D.A. in today's Tennessean. Its subject is the Duke lacrosse team's prosecution, but there are some interesting parallels to Pac's situation.

    " . . . There are a number of lessons that can be drawn from this tragic public spectacle. First, criminal accusations that involve race, gender, and class produce a toxic combination that can poison the search for the truth. Political leaders, pundits, commentators, and all manner of self-promoting "experts" speculated tirelessly concerning a situation about which they were totally ignorant.

    Lesson No. 2 is to be wary of the frenzied media coverage that is usually short on facts and long on uninformed opinions and guesswork. Third, be skeptical of initial accounts of the purported facts. The early stages of any criminal complaint and investigation are typically fluid and can change quickly. Even with the best of intentions, it is difficult to provide accurate information under such conditions. . . .

    Another and sometimes frustrating lesson is to allow the criminal justice system to work. Even with its flaws, the system is the best process available to ferret out the truth . . ."

    The difference here is he wanted to be an employee. He was not already employed by Hooters and then fired from Hooters because he was not a woman. His lawsuit would be the equivilent of an unathletic woman suing the NFL because no team would sign her. Your argument has no validity under the current legal system.
