Although the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1998 that Title VII covers claims of same-sex sexual harassment, the decision did not expand the law to include claims of “sexual orientation discrimination,” a federal judge has ruled.

In his 20-page decision in Bibby v. The Philadelphia Coca-Cola Bottling Co., U.S. District Judge Jan E. DuBois dismissed claims of sexual harassment by an openly gay man who said management ignored his complaints of sexual name-calling and graffiti by co-workers.
