"'The law,' the judge wrote, 'does not punish lactation discrimination.' Lactation discrimination is not pregnancy discrimination, according to the judge, because it is not 'pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition' under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act." [editor's note: Looks like a misleading headline. The judge didn't rule that lactation is unrelated to pregnancy, he ruled that it is not a "medical condition" related to pregnancy - TLK] (02/21/12)
