'Irresistible' Woman Asks Court to Rehear Firing

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) A dental assistant fired because her boss thought she was too attractive wants the Iowa Supreme Court to reconsider its decision rejecting her discrimination lawsuit.

Melissa Nelson's attorney asked the all-male court Friday to withdraw its Dec. 21 ruling, which she called a "significant blow to gender equality."

The court ruled that Nelson's firing by Fort Dodge dentist James Knight might've been unfair but wasn't illegal. The court ruled that firings of employees who are an "irresistible attraction" to bosses do not violate the Iowa Civil Rights Act because they're motivated by emotion, not gender.

Nelson's filing says the court erred because her gender played a role in her termination.

Knight said he fired Nelson because he'd grown too close to her and worried he'd try to start an affair.
