One of the Dumbest Court Decisions in a Long Time,

and it doesn't even involve the United States Supreme Court. It's in Iowa, of all places:

After working as a dental assistant for ten years, Melissa Nelson was fired for being too "irresistible" and a "threat" to her employer's marriage.

"I think it is completely wrong," Nelson said. "I think it is sending a message that men can do whatever they want in the work force."

On Friday, the all-male Iowa State Supreme Court ruled that James Knight, Nelson's boss, was within his legal rights when he fired her, affirming the decision of a lower court.

Evidently the Iowa Supreme Court has never heard of sexual harassment. This is obviously such a case.
