Partial Victory For Paula Deen As Judge Dismisses Racial Discrimination Suit

The judge in the case threw out the racial discrimination aspects of the case, ruling that since Lisa Jackson is a white woman she has no right to claim racial discrimination from a fellow white woman. Lisa Jackson, lesbian and former general manager, was outed by her own partner who testified that the so-called black bi-racial nieces where actually her nieces, that they were not part of their lives and hadn't seen them in 5 years, and were Hispanic, not black. Jackson claimed she had black bi-racial nieces which caused her to be sensitive and emotionally distraught from the alleged racism.

However, Lisa Jackson is also suing for sexual discrimination and so far this suit will stand at least for now.
