Des Moines, Iowa - ABC News reported that on Friday, the all male Iowa Supreme Court ruled that Dentist James M. Knight acted properly when he terminated Melissa Nelson, 32, for finding her "irresistibly attractive." Friday's appeal ruling exhausts further appeals after three years of legal challenges against Nelson's unjust termination.
Nelson filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against Knight after he was pressured by his wife to fire her for just being an attractive woman. Knight's wife felt threaten that her marriage would be dissolved after she discovered that her husband had sent text massages to Nelson. Knight confessed to his wife that he indeed found Nelson irresistibly attractive.
Nelson is married and has two children. Neither Knight or Nelson had ever engaged in any extramarital activity between them. He intimately just found her attractive.
The Iowa supreme court ruling set precedent that any woman can get terminated in the state for just being attractive to preserve the best interests of a marriage. Especially, the marriage of a male boss who finds his employee attractive even, if they never engaged in any type of advances resulting in an affair, according to the Iowa Supreme Court ruling.
