Thank you Nebraska Supreme Court for keeping lawyers busy when business was starting to dry up. The supreme court (J Connolly, again) extends its ruling in Jackson v. Morris Communications Corp.265 Neb. 423, 657 N.W.2d 634 (2003) , that allowed retaliatory discharge actions for injured workers who sued their employers to almost any kind of adverse employment action in Trosper v. Bag 'N Save, S-05-889, 273 Neb. 855 This ruling comes at just the right time as the Nebraska Worker Compensation court most recent annual report shows that job injuries and claims have steadily fallen for the past 9 years. All is not lost for business though, because the Nebraska Supreme court will copy and paste all employment discrimination law from the glorious federal government to carry out its quest for more attorney fees and justice.
