A non-Jewish man will be allowed to sue for anti-Semitic slurs he endured from his supervisors.
A New Jersey appeals court overruled a lower court's ruling that held Myron Cowher, 49, couldn't sue for discrimination because he wasn't Jewish. Cowher claimed a "continual utterance of explicit slurs about Jews" was directed at him for over a year, MSNBC reports. Cowher was a truck driver for Carson & Roberts Site Construction & Engineering. He left in May 2008.
While the court's ruling might sound counterintuitive, it gives good reason for why people of any ethnicity should be able to sue for racist remarks at work.
