Fourth Circuit Vacates Decision in Jordan v. Alternative Resources Corp.

I recently wrote about Jordan v. Alternative Resources Corp. There, the Fourth Circuit held as a matter of law that a plaintiff did not reasonably believe that the following comment violated our anti-discrimination laws:

"they should put those two black monkeys in a cage with a bunch of black apes and let the apes f--k them"

The Fourth Circuit recently granted rehearing and vacated its earlier opinion. The next chapter in this case will be soon be written.
