    Court: 'Irresistible' Workers Can Be Fired

    An Iowa dentist was within his legal rights when he fired a longtime employee he found to be "irresistible" and a threat to his marriage, the State Supreme Court unanimously ruled. The seven justices, all male, affirmed on Friday a lower court's decision in favor of Dr. James Knight, who terminated Melissa Nelson after employing her for 10 and a half years as a dental assistant.

    "We do think the Iowa Supreme Court got it completely right," said Stuart Cochrane, an attorney for James Knight. "Our position has always been Mrs. Nelson was never terminated because of her gender, she was terminated because of concerns her behavior was not appropriate in the workplace. She's an attractive lady. Dr. Knight found her behavior and dress to be inappropriate."

    Six months before Nelson was fired, she and her boss began exchanging text messages about work and personal matters, such as updates about each of their children's activities, the justices wrote.

    The messages were mostly mundane, but Nelson recalled one text she received from her boss asking "how often she experienced an orgasm."

    Nelson did not respond to the text and never indicated that she was uncomfortable with Knight's question, according to court documents.
    Soon after, Knight's wife, Jeanne, who also works at the practice, found out about the text messaging and ordered her husband to fire Nelson.

    well good thing you're not the law.

    he has the right to discharge her, but she also has the right to sue for wrongful dismissal, and also for unemployment benefits since she was not discharged for cause.

    WOW, if those really are the facts of the case, the court fucked up big time. His actions were inappropriate, no matter how you slice it.

    I wouldn't want my husband having a hot assistant, but you can't fire her for being hot. But i guess now you can, AND sexually harass her at the same time!

    Look at you making sense and stuff. We blame the hot assistant for everything, no matter what the facts are.

    i know dentists, and they are scuzzy and all fuck their assistants.

    There is way more to this story, and that was his cover to her so he didn't lose half his practice.
