57. Many said that the KKK didn't have a case either.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_Liberties_Union

In 1977, a small group of American Nazis, led by Frank Collin, applied to the town of Skokie, Illinois for permission to hold a demonstration in the town park. Skokie at the time had a majority population of Jews, totaling 40,000 of 70,000 citizens, some of whom were survivors of Nazi concentration camps. Skokie refused to grant permission, and an Illinois judge supported Skokie and prohibited the demonstration. Skokie immediately passed three ordinances aimed at preventing the group from meeting in Skokie. The ACLU assisted Collins and appealed to federal court. The appeal dragged on for a year, and the ACLU eventually prevailed in Smith v. Collin, 447 F.Supp. 676.



One never knows what can be not only a case, but a winnable case. In a way, it is good that she is suing instead of him. The precedents that is going to happen is going to be big as it is. But the one that his case could have made could have been a severely negative for many discrimination suits that comes up in the future.
