State Supreme Court to
hear AIDS rumor case
LANSING (AP) - The Michi-
gan Supreme Court will hear argu-
ments on whether a woman who
left her job after being falsely ru-
mored to be carrying the AIDS virus
can sue her employer under Michi-
gan laws protecting the civil rights
of handicapped people.
On the court's agenda for the
next three days, besides the AIDS
rumor case, are 10 other cases, in-
cluding two libel cases and a
business tax deduction dispute.

be argued before the Michigan

Employers would have to imme-

how to protect themselves.
A municipal police department

Vaccines would have to be offered

Not all police would be pro-

Public sector employees in 27 states

states to extend the protections to
public employees such as police and

That would have wiped out the

fourth of what the single business
