Scoop: CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY on CBS - January 5, 2013
Fired for her irresistible good looks, Melissa Nelson, a dental assistant who sued her boss for discrimination and lost in the Iowa State Supreme Court will appear live today, Jan. 5 on CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY (check local listings) on the CBS Television Network. Nelson will be joined by her attorney, Paige Fiedler, to discuss the surprising ruling.
Nelson, 32, had worked alongside her boss, dentist James Knight, 53, for 10 years until he terminated her in 2010 for being an "irresistible attraction" and a threat to his marriage. Claiming no flirtatious behavior was exchanged, Nelson sued Knight for gender discrimination. The case went all the way to Iowa's highest Court, where the all-male panel ruled 7-0 that Knight acted legally.
