Woman Sues Employer For Sex Discrimination

A federal appeals court says a Maine woman can head to trial with a sex discrimination suit against a Maine insurance company.

Laurie Chadwick of Sebago says her employer, Anthem Health Plans of Maine, denied her a promotion because they thought her four kids would make the new job responsibilities too tough.

Now the first U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Chadwick can take her claims to trial.

Augusta civil rights lawyer David Webbert, who represents Chadwick, says the case could be a landmark in an emerging area of
discrimination law.
