The Department of Justice and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission went head to head in the highly publicized case of Zarda v. Altitude Express, Inc., where a man who was fired from his job as a skydiving instructor simply because he was Gay.

The court is set to reconsider a 17-year-old legal precedent stating that employment discrimination based on sexual orientation is not prohibited under federal law. We will keep you posted as this case continues to progress.
