Amanda Farahany Comments on SCOTUS Ruling in Favor of LGBTQ Employees

The Fulton County Daily Report quoted Amanda Farahany in the June 15, 2020 article “Elated, Brilliant or Dangerous: Georgia’s Legal Community Reacts to SCOTUS LGBTQ Opinion.” Amanda was among numerous legal leaders in Georgia to comment on the landmark United States Supreme Court ruling that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act covers discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Amanda said: “This victory for the LGBTQ community shows that once again, the 11th Circuit has been improperly applying Title VII to employment cases, a statute that is intended to have broad remedial measures. Not only has the court ensured equal protection for the LGBTQ community, it has also explained that the 11th Circuit has been applying an inappropriately heightened standard. This case should provide not only protection to the LGBTQ community, but also to many other employees who have been discriminated against because of their race, religion, color, national origin, disability or age.”
