4:20 – Blazing fast ruling in favor of San Diego firefighters
After being forced to participate--despite numerous objections--in San Diego’s 2007 “Gay Pride Parade,” four firefighters from the San Diego Fire Department were sexually harassed through lewd cat calls and obscene gestures at the event, which was replete with sexual displays and graphic images. The San Diego Fire Department disregarded the firefighters’ objections. For its wrongful actions against the firefighters, a jury in state superior court found in favor of the firefighters in the case in February 2009. The city appealed the verdict and in October the Appeals Court ruled in the firefighters favor, saying “the record contains substantial evidence to support a finding that the sexual harassment experienced by the Firefighters during the Pride Parade was severe and pervasive, thus altering the conditions of employment and creating a hostile or abusive work environment.” Their attorney, Charles LiMandri, joins us.

4:40 – Portions of Justice Clarence Thomas Speech
Today, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas delivered a speech at the Legatus Summit where “Kresta in the Afternoon” is being broadcast.

5:40 – Egypt and the Financial Markets
Stocks have edged up this week as investors grew hopeful that the political standoff in Egypt will be contained and resolved peacefully, while the euro eased back from three-month highs against the dollar after a ratings downgrade of Ireland. Though Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak' vow late Tuesday to not stand for president again in September has not stopped the protests, there is a feeling in the markets that a peaceful transition may be in the works. George Schwartz, President and portfolio manager of the Ave Maria Family of Funds and author of Good Returns: Making Money by Morally Responsible Investing is here to analyze the markets and how they are responding to the Middle East turmoil.
