Bostock v. Clayton County, Ga.

Gerald L. Bostock is a Georgia man who was fired for being gay.

With employment lawyers Brian J. Sutherlandand Thomas J Mew, IV at the helm, Gerald’s case is expected to yield a landmark decision from the Supreme Court of the United States to ensure all LGBT people the right to work and earn a living without fear of discrimination.

About Gerald

Gerald was an award-winning child welfare services coordinator for the Court Appointed Special Advocates, or “CASA” program in Clayton County, Georgia where he was able to take the program to unprecedented levels of success.

He was proudly making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children in his community. But all that changed when the County learned Gerald was gay and had been encouraging friends in his gay softball league to volunteer for CASA. The County claimed he was guilty of “conduct unbecoming” and quickly fired Gerald after 10 years of faithful service.

Gerald filed a lawsuit challenging his termination because he believes he can prove that he was fired only because he is gay. With the help of his lawyers, Gerald has pursued his case all the way to the United States Supreme Court. He wants the American people to know that, unless the Supreme Court does something, people in our country can still be fired for being gay, lesbian or bisexual, and Gerald is ready to fight for the rights of millions of Americans.
