Stanton On Larry King Live Thursday

The St. Petersburg Times today revealed that Steve Stanton is slated to appear with his attorney on Larry King Live. Stanton will announce whether he'll sue his former employer on Larry King, said his lawyer, Karen Doering, senior counsel for the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

Simon Aronoff, deputy director National Center for Transgender Equality, said Stanton will join his organization in Washington, D.C., next month to lobby Congress for the transgender-inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

The article discusses Stanton's legal chances, quoting yours truly on the pro-Stanton side:

"'He has an excellent case, but not necessarily an easy one,' said Jillian Weiss, assistant professor of law and society at Ramapo College of New Jersey. She pointed to three cases handled by the Florida Commission on Human Relations that could help Stanton."

More at the St. Pete Times, which also quotes the attorney of a trans Largo resident who successfully sued for gender identity discrimination, as well as the ever-quotable Professor Paul Secunda of Workplace Prof Blog, who gently disputed my rose-colored glasses view. I forgive him this trespass (but she who laughs last laughs best).
