Complaint against Catholic U. for single-sex dorms is dismissed

Catholic World News - November 30, 2011

The District of Colombia has dismissed a sex-discrimination case against the Catholic University of America (CUA), brought by an activist who objected to the school’s return to single-sex dormitories.

The Office of Human Rights rejected the complaint brought by John Banzhaf, a law professor at George Washington University, noting that housing males and females in separate dorms does not constitute discrimination against either sex.

Banzhaf has filed a separate complaint against CUA for allegedly discriminating against Muslim students by failing to provide them with rooms designated for Islamic prayer. The Office of Human Rights has not yet taken action on that complaint.

    Catholic Univeristy should sue John Banzhaf for any legal costs it incurred in this bogus sex-discrimination case.

    Seems to me that omitting publishing the complaint-happy lawyer's name would slow down this sort of activity.
