Texas grad suing college because she can't find employment

Steve Schroeder, director of UW-Madison's Business Career Center, says many in his line of work are rolling their eyes at Thompson's lawsuit.

"There have been e-mails going around sort of like, 'Can you believe this?' " says Schroeder. "I think most people thought it was kind of a joke, like something you'd see in the Onion." (In fact, the incident already has been spoofed by the Onion.)

Granted, this sounds like a frivolous lawsuit. And so far, the court of public opinion is siding with Monroe College spokesman Gary Axelbank, who told the Post the lawsuit is completely without merit, said Weinberg Law Firm, Texas Employment Lawyer.

"What we stress is that our office's responsibility is to teach job search skills," says John Archambault, director of career services with UW-Madison's College of Engineering. "Years ago, these offices were called 'placement offices.' But they don't do that anymore because they don't want to give the impression that it's our responsibility to place you in a job. Our responsibility is to teach you how to find that job and it's your responsibility to do well in your coursework and spend your time at the university becoming a well-rounded, attractive employee."

Even college students are having a difficult time making sense of Thompson's actions.

Los Angeles women and the bottle leading to more DUI's

While men still consume more alcohol than women and are responsible for a greater number of drunken-driving cases, the gap is shortening, said Michael Bialys, Los Angeles DUI lawyer.

Among the reasons noted for the tightening numbers are that women are experiencing more pressures at work and home, they are driving more miles behind the wheel, and they are finding ways to behave more recklessly.

Mom Says Coach Ignored Son's Stroke-Causing Brain Injuries During Football Game

With the district's backing, the lawsuit claims, Sunkett taunted his players for not playing "or complaining of symptoms consistent with concussion, including yelling at a student with a head injury to `quit playing like a little (expletive) and get out there."'

John Q. Kelly, New York brain injury lawyer, claims that Sunkett also ridiculed injured players, creating an atmosphere in which injuries were not reported or were underreported, and wouldn't inform parents that their children were injured, including with concussions.

Orange County hospital employee claims promotion denial due to sexual harassment complaint

Without warning, Houser claims he was terminated on Oct. 16 and was told he was being let go because he was the "low man on the totem pole." However, all of Houser's co-workers except for two had less seniority than him, according to the complaint.

"Defendants intentionally discriminated against plaintiff by failing to promote him, and later terminating him because of his opposition to the discriminatory practices and/or hostile work environment put in place by his supervisor," the sexual harassment lawyer Orange County states.

"He had, in fact, been suspended without pay for five days in April 2003 for a number of serious infractions," said Mr. Victor, and his job duties were modified in February 2008 for performance reasons.

Mr. Victor said Mr. Barley had missed meetings "and had no explanation" and had turned in mileage reimbursement requests that "seemed to be excessive."

Since Mr. Barley's job duties included checking other employees' driving records, he may have faced a credibility problem if he continued, Mr. Victor said.

Reached by phone, Mr. Barley said he had not gotten a termination notice, and had no comment.
