Maine Panel Rejects Governor’s Request to Reconsider Moody’s Ruling

The Maine Human Rights Commission yesterday considered and denied a request from Governor LePage that the commission reconsider its finding that Moody’s Diner of Waldoboro was guilty of discrimination against an employee on religious grounds. They also voted to take no further action against Moody’s, such as taking them to court over the matter. The woman who was found to be the victim of discrimination intends to sue Moody’s in federal court, “out of reach of Maine politicians,” according to her attorney.

Maine Governor LePage Strong-Arming Rights Commission on Behalf of Moody’s Diner

The Maine Human Rights Commission ruled last year that Moody’s Diner, of Waldoboro, Maine had discriminated against an employee on religious grounds, retaliated against that employee for pursuing the matter legally, and altered the conditions of her employment as a result. As the parties were in the process of trying to settle the matter out of court, Maine Governor LePage stepped in. He wants the Commission to reconsider the case, and is withholding revenues due the commission in order to coerce the commission into acceding to his wishes. The Commission will discuss the possibility of reopening the case on Monday.
