      A law professor who wrote a law review article on gender-stereotyping
      theory has been sued for alleged defamation over a footnoted case
      study he used involving a claim of vegetarian bias.

      The defendant, employment law professor Zachary Kramer, is now
      associate dean for intellectual life at Arizona State University’s
      Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. His article (PDF), published in
      the Washington University Law Review, highlights a suit accusing bank
      executive Robert Catalanello of discriminating against an employee
      because he was a vegetarian.

      Catalanello sued Kramer in a complaint (PDF) filed Dec. 28 in New
      Jersey federal court, Courthouse News Service reports. The suit claims
      Kramer defamed Catalanello and invaded his privacy in the article and
      in a lecture. Also named as defendants are the Washington University
      School of Law and Western New England University School of Law, where
      Kramer gave the lecture.

      The allegations against Catalanello aren't new. The New York Post
      published news of fired employee Ryan Pacifico's lawsuit against
      Catalanello in a 2009 article that began, “A Long Island man says his
      ex-boss is a real beef jerky who fired him after deeming his
      vegetarianism to be ‘gay.’ "
