Court: We assume you’re not biased against Americans

An applicant for an adjunct professor position at a for-profit educational institution has lost her bid to advance a lawsuit alleging discrimination against Americans. The court noted that it takes more than a mere allegation to litigate a suit charging discrimination against the majority.

Recent case: Diane Phillips claimed she was offered a job as an adjunct professor and then had the offer rescinded because she is of American national origin. Describing her protected status in her filing, Phillips said she is a dark-skinned, black female Christian American over age 40.

The court had a problem with the “American” part. It said she would have to do more than assert her nationality to have that part of the claim stand up. Without evidence that the school hired largely non-Americans, she had no case. Her other claims will move forward. (Phillips v. ITT Educational Services, No. 10-C-2441, ND IL, 2010)
