A female basketball referee’s discrimination suit claiming she is barred from officiating boys’ varsity basketball games based on gender has been dismissed after a federal judge ruled that a school district and basketball officials’ organization don’t amount to employers.

Tamika Covington claimed that the Central Jersey District Board 193 of the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials and the Hamilton Township Board of Education discriminate against women basketball referees in violation of Title VII the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD). Her suit was filed in July 2008.
