U.S. District Judge Janet Hall granted a motion for summary judgment in a class-action lawsuit filed against the Department of Corrections in 2008.
She agreed with the plaintiffs, who argued that a physical fitness test that required applicants meet certain times for a 1.5 mile run was discriminatory.
Once again, class, men and women are not the same. There are some jobs which have physical requirements which make them difficult for women, as a group, to be successful. Lowering these requirements does not solve the problem–it merely creates others.
