University Of Iowa Employee Sues Over Alleged Discrimination For Conservative Past

University of Iowa officials are defending their decision to reassign an employee who is suing over claims that she suffered employment discrimination because of her conservative views.The university transferred Teresa Wagner, a Republican, from her eight-year job as associate director of the law school's writing center to a position in the main library's unit that preserves special collections.
State lawyers last month petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to dismiss Wagner's lawsuit, which claims she was passed over for law school faculty jobs because liberal professors objected to her prior work for groups that oppose abortion rights. If the court doesn't intervene, a second trial is scheduled for March after a prior case ended in mistrial.
