A Texas federal judge, has just held that a woman who claimed that she was fired for seeking to pump breast milk while on the job had no viable claim under Title VII’s prohibition against discrimination based upon pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition.   The title of this blog entry is a direct quote from the decision. 

The Court stated curtly that after plaintiff gave birth, “she was no longer pregnant and her pregnancy-related conditions ended."


To this blogger, an appeal seems likely, as well as a reversal or overturning of this holding.
