A school district hired a man rather than Geraldine Fuhr as varsity boys head basketball coach. While the man had two years of experience, Fuhr had been the varsity girls head basketball coach for 10 years and assistant coach of the varsity boys team for eight years. Fuhr sued for sex discrimination and won. The court took the unusual step of ordering her installment as the varsity boys head coach. A federal appeals court agreed. The court said it has wide discretion to "fashion the most complete relief possible" to "make the victims of unlawful discrimination whole." (Fuhr v. School District of the City of Hazel Park, Nos. 01-2215/2606; 02-1367, 6th Cir., 2004)
