Other lawyers seem to be in a constant state of envy over the 'juicy details' of the cases that appear on the dockets of employment lawyers. For example, from today's summary of cases recently filed in state district court in Austin, a pro se complainant brings an:
Employee discrimination action in which the plaintiff was suspended without pay over a public display of affection with his same-sex partner while sitting in a company car, seeking punitive damages.
Oh no, some management side employment lawyer will soon be saying, not another "public display of affection" case for punitive damages! Thank goodness for State Farm v. Campbell [pdf].
