4th Circuit Remains Evil

The appalling retaliation case I summarized here--where an employee was fired for complaining when a co-worker said of two arrested black felons (the D.C. snipers) that those "two black monkeys [should be put] in a cage with a bunch of black apes and let the apes fuck them"--was vacated earlier this year--but the original panel just reinstated the ruling on roughly the same grounds as the original decision. Simply shocking.

Maybe we can hope for en banc review?

The 4th circuit is a Constitution-free zone. Things will actually find a way to get worse if Haynes gets the judgeship.

At least George Allen wasn't so explicit.
