A federal court judge has thrown out the lawsuit by the wife of a former employee of a porl roll manufacturer in New Jersey. The lawsuit against Case Pork Roll Co. alleged that the company fired her husband because his gastric bypass surgery left him with “extreme gas and uncontrollable diarrhea,” reports NJ.com.
Louann Clem filed the suit in September 2015 saying she suffered mental and physical anguish after Case Pork Roll Co. dismissed her husband. She quit her job with the company on that same day. Louann Clem claimed company officials complained to her about the odor issue affecting visitors to the office.
In the ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Freda Wolfson wrote that the company officials' comments were inappropriate, but didn't create a hostile work environment.
