Bauer v. Lynch, 14-2323

In an employment discrimination case challenging the FBI's use of gender-normed physical fitness standards, the district court's grant of summary judgment to plaintiff is reversed where employers can utilize physical fitness standards that distinguish between the sexes on the basis of their physiological differences but impose an equal burden of compliance on both men and women.
