Minnesota lawmakers seek to expand discrimination prohibitions

Five Minnesota DFL senators recently offered a bill that would prohibit discrimination against LGBT people in jury service. The bill would add sexual orientation and marital status to current prohibitions against discrimination based on more familiar protected categories, such as race, color, religion, sex, national origin, economic status or a physical or sensory disability. The provision would be in accord with Minnesota's Human Rights Act, which has offered protection against sexual orientation discrimination in the workplace since 1993.
