Connecticut court rules it’s OK to fire pregnant workers
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled yesterday small companies can fire pregnant employees without violating the state’s ban on gender discrimination.
The court ruled in a 3-2 vote that a 1967 law exempts businesses that have fewer than three workers.
“This state’s public policy against sex discrimination by private employers is not absolute,” Justice Richard Palmer wrote for the majority. “The legislature has carved out an exception to that policy for small employers.”
The case involved Nicole Thibodeau, who was fired in 1998 by her employer, Design Group One, a tiny architectural firm in Chester, Conn. Her lawyers argued the firm violated her rights under the state Constitution, which prohibits discrimination based on gender.
The court’s decision is “very upsetting,” her lawyer, Elaine Rubinson said.
“I never thought they would do that,” she said.
The Connecticut Civil Liberties Union had said upholding Thibodeau’s firing would leave tens of thousands of workers at small businesses in Connecticut without legal protection from discrimination.
U.S. Pledge of Allegiance ruled unconstitutional
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — For the first time ever, a federal appeals court yesterday declared the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because of the words “under God” added by Congress in 1954.
The ruling, if allowed to stand, means schoolchildren can no longer recite the pledge, at least in the nine Western states covered by the court.
The pledge reads: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
In a 2-1 decision, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the phrase amounts to a government endorsement of religion in violation of the Constitution’s Establishment Clause, which requires a separation of church and state.
“A profession that we are a nation ‘under God’ is identical, for Establishment Clause purposes, to a profession that we are a nation ‘under Jesus,’ a nation ‘under Vishnu,’ a nation ‘under Zeus,’ or a nation ‘under no god,’ because none of these professions can be neutral with respect to religion,” Judge Alfred T. Goodwin wrote for the three-judge panel.
“The president’s reaction was that this ruling is ridiculous,” said White House spokesman Ari Fleischer.
The ruling was also attacked on Capitol Hill, with Senate Majority Leader Thomas Daschle calling it “just nuts.”
The 9th Circuit covers Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington state.
The case was brought by Michael A. Newdow, a Sacramento atheist who objected because his second-grade daughter was required to recite the pledge at school.
Newdow, a doctor who holds a law degree and represented himself, called the pledge a “religious idea that certain people don’t agree with.”
First Manson family member may be paroled
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Of all the members of Charles Manson’s murderous “family,” Leslie Van Houten was always seen as the different one — the youngest, the one most vulnerable to Manson’s diabolical control.
Now she hopes to be the first member of the cult involved in the 1969 Tate-La Blanca killings to get out on parole.
Tomorrow — nearly 33 years since the slaughter of actress Sharon Tate and six others shocked the country — Van Houten, 52, goes before the state parole board for the 14th time. This time, she might have a chance.
Earlier this month, Superior Court Judge Bob Krug strongly admonished the board for flatly turning Van Houten down every time based solely on the crime. Such decisions, he said, ignore Van Houten’s accomplishments in prison and turn her life sentence into life without parole, in violation of the law.
In addition, Krug said that Van Houten had successfully completed every rehabilitation program offered in prison and that her psychiatric evaluations “clearly indicate that she is not a present danger to society and should be found suitable for parole.”
Deputy District Attorney Stephen Kay will be arguing against Van Houten’s parole for the 14th time.
“This is not a garden-variety murder case and it should not be treated as such,” he said. “I commend her for her good acts in prison and she appears to be a model prisoner. I think she should spend the rest of her life being a model prisoner. I feel because of what she did, she is not entitled to parole.”
U.S. House flushes to ann pilots, despite Bush opposition
WASHINGTON (AP) — Ignoring U.S. administration objections, the House of Representatives transportation committee voted yesterday to allow more than 1,000 pilots to carry guns for a two-year trial.
The legislation approved by voice vote would allow up to 1,400 pilots — two per cent of the work force — to volunteer for training and obtain permission to carry guns on board planes they are piloting.
Backed by pilots’ unions, bipartisan groups of legislators in both houses have moved to overturn the administration’s decision to keep guns out of airplane cockpits.
The Association of Flight Attendants objected to the bill, saying it does not protect passengers and crew members in the cabin.

‘Talking* chimp dies at 29
ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) — Moja, one of the “talking” chimps at Central Washington University who communicated with humans by sign language, has died at 29 of complications from an abdominal hernia.
She was one of five chimps at the university’s Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute, a sanctuary for adult chimpanzees who communicate with humans and each other using American Sign Language.
She could talk about most things,” said institute co-director Roger Fouts. “She would ask for a favourite dress ... and say what colour she wanted.”
Moja was raised much as if she were a deaf human child, and accumulated a signing vocabulary of about 180 words and phrases. She could also draw pictures and tell lab workers what the figures represented.
New Web site fights eredit-card fraud
WASHINGTON (AP)—An anti-fraud education group that tipped federal authorities to an Internet credit card scheme has opened a Web site that enables people to find out if thieves have their card numbers.
The database created over the last seven weeks already has amassed 100,000 stolen credit card numbers, the group said.
The group, CardCops, collected the information from Internet chat rooms where thieves have been checking whether stolen card numbers are still valid or have been deactivated. Cardholders can go to http://www.cardcops.com and type in the number. If the number comes back positive, cardholders should alert their financial institution.
