Settling.

Houston-based River Oaks Imaging and Diagnostic settled a wrongful termination suit filed by 27-year old Izza Lopez, who alleges the radiology chain rescinded a job offer after discovering her transgender status. The parties will not discuss the terms, but a Lambda Legal spokesperson remarked, “I can tell you the case has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of both parties.” You know what that means: $$$.

      This may be one of the rare cases of actual wrongful termination. My gut feel after reading the article is that there was discrimination. However, we must be cautious. Wrongful termination is one of those phrases that is often simply wrong. In fact, actual wrongful termination is extremely rare however greedy, vengeful people continually use this phrase as they seek so-called justice and revenge against their enemies. In my book, Wingtips with Spurs, Lessons From the Ranch, I title one of the chapters Firing. In it, I detail wrongful termination and what an organization must do to fortify against the turks(that is, Dan Rathers) coming over the wall. Michael L. Gooch http://www.michaellgooch.com
