A federal judge is throwing out a discrimination suit that alleges a former employee at a pork roll company in Trenton, New Jersey was fired for flatulence problems. Louann Clem filed the suit in September 2015, claiming the decision by Case Pork Roll Company to fire Richard Cass caused her mental and physical anguish.
According to the suit, Cass experienced flatulence problems after undergoing gastric bypass surgery in 2010, and company officials told Clem the odor issue was affecting people visiting the office. A judge said the company did not create a hostile work environment in dismissing the suit. (Sounds like the smell was offending though!)
