A Little Light Reading.

About a year and a half ago I participated in a book for Bloomberg BNA about LGBT employment law. The title of the book is Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Discrimination in the Workplace: A Practical Guide.

5Ka8DxLSX426BO24232I wrote Chapter 6, which is about my case from my perspective, and which is titled “GLENN v. BRUMBY: FORTY YEARS AFTER GROSSMAN.” The editor, Christine Michelle Duffy, rejected my choice of title, inspired by our lawsuit’s conclusion at the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals: “Gone To Eleven.” I continue to believe there should be more references to This Is Spinal Tap in legal writing.

You can download my chapter here. I’m very proud of it.

You may purchase the entire massive, 1,700 page tome directly from Bloomberg at the link above or from Amazon.com here.

The price is $410. Obviously the book wasn’t written for the consumer market, and I don’t expect any of you to go buy a copy. But several other chapters and sections have also been made available as .pdf files online, and I’ve aggregated the following links where you can download them:
