San Diego’s double standard on hate crimes: claims firefighters forced to participate in gay pride parade were “subjected to what can fairly be described as simple teasing, offhand comments, and extremely isolated incidents of partial nudity or lewd behavior.”

In an unusually speedy ruling, a state appeals court has unanimously upheld sexual harassment damages awarded by a jury to four San Diego firefighters forced to participate in the city’s 2007 ‘gay pride’ parade.

On Oct. 14 – less than a week after oral arguments in the case – the Fourth District Court of Appeal issued a 74-page decision upholding a jury’s award of monetary damages to the four firefighters.
