Lawyers argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court on Dec. 1 over whether a town’s rescue squad violated the state’s Law Against Discrimination when it allegedly fired one of its employees because he was about to get a divorce.

Miller claimed he was told that he was being fired because the divorce would be “ugly.”
