Evil wins again.
The British courts have dismissed an unfair dismissal and sexual discrimination case against Heather Mills that was filed by her former nanny!
Sara Tumble had claimed that Mills had demoted her to a housekeeper after she took her maternity leave, but Mills claims Tumble was just upset because her employer wouldn't pay for her boob job!
Her spokesperson says:
"Heather is delighted with the decision of the Employment Tribunal that has dismissed all of Sara Trumble's claims. Heather was always a very fair and generous employer to Sara and is very pleased that this has been confirmed by Judge Vowles and the tribunal members unanimously in judgment."
Lucky break, Mucca!

After receiving complaints from the transgender community, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is forcing American Eagle to ditch their rule about their employees personal appearance that banned men wearing women's clothing and vice versa.
A member of Make the Road New York, the same group that accused J. Crew of discriminating against transgenders, said "This shows me that there's faith and hope. There might be a domino effect, that's what I'm hoping for."
The settlement signed by American Eagle said they will change their policies as well as their employee handbooks. They will also be training their staff on transgender issues.
A rep from the retailer said in a statement:
"To avoid further expense and the distraction of a prolonged argument, [we have] agreed to a compromise settlement in this case, with the understanding that AEO is not admitting to the findings. We wholeheartedly believe that transgender individuals should be treated equally."
Actions speak louder than words, sister!

On Monday, federal courts ruled that thousands of female Walmart employees can sue the mega-retailer over allegations that men got paid more to work at the company.
Now that the ruling was approved, as many as 1 million women could be involved in the class action suit.
Walmart believes the case "presented issues that go far beyond the parties. This formula is reall a recipe for massive litigation against companies around the country", which is exactly why they're going to the Supreme Court to review it.
We're sure they are! Could you imagine how much money they would have to shell out!?
The women, who are "determined to see this case through to its conclusion", hope to be in court by the end of the year.
