Transcript HOUSTON VOICE / APRIL 7, 1995 11 Tokyo company that fired AIDS victim ordered to pay damages By PETER LANDERS FOR THE HOUSTON VOICE TOKYO, Thursday, March 30 (AP)—A company that fired an employee because he had the AIDS virus must rehire him and pay damages, a Tokyo court ordered Thursday in Japan's first ruling on the right of AIDS victims to work. The Tokyo District Court ruling also was the latest in recent years to challenge the legal rights of Japanese employers, who have long enjoyed favorable treatment on such issues as Judge precludes church from entering same-sex trial HONOLULU, Wednesday, March 29 (AP)—A Circuit judge refused Tuesday to permit the Mormon Church to enter the legal battle to keep same-sex marriages illegal in Hawaii. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints wanted to join the slate in defending the ban on same-sex marriages. Three gay and lesbian couples filed a lawsuit against the state four years ago seeking lo overturn the law banning their marriages. Preliminary court rulings sided wilh the couples, and the matter is set to be heard by the state Supreme Court in September. The Mormon Church submitted its petition seeking to intervene earlier this winter. At the time, Don Hal- I strom, the regional representative for the church, said it did so because of the seriousness of the issue and its potential impact on society. "There are times when certain moral issues become so compelling that churches have a duty to make their feelings known," Hallstrom said. The attorney for the couples had argued the church's motion was filed too late and the church had no legal standing. Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt recently signed into law a bill denying recognition to homosexual marriages made in other states. Opponents of the bill have said it violates constitutional guarantees, and gay groups said they will sue over Utah's law if Hawaii legalizes same-sex marriages. hiring and defective product The court ordered a computer software company to pay the man, identified only as Mr. A, 6 million yen, or about $68,000, in damages and 9 million yen, or about $100,000, in back pay. The company learned of Mr. A's infection through a hospital AIDS tesi that was conducted without his knowledge when he was assigned to a company subsidiary in Southeast Asia. The man was ordered back to Japan, where he was informed of his infection by the company president. The com- 'hich also was not identified, fired him shortly afterward, in Oct. 1992. "With this decision, corporate attitudes will have to change," said the man's lawyer, Tsutomu Shimizu. The decision was one of several landmark cases to go against corporations in recent years. Last year, a court in western Japan ordered Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. to compensate a customer for a defective television set that exploded. Yet the fact that the plaintiff chose to remain anonymous illustrated the widespread prejudice in Japan against AIDS victims. "There's social discrimination," said Shimizu. "The situation in Japan now is such that if his name were disclosed, the discrimination would extend even to his family." According to the Health and Welfare Ministry, 3233 people in Japan have the virus that causes AIDS, up from 2914 a year ago. The ministry says 889 have full-blown AIDS, and 536 people have died from the disease. If you re terminally ill, no one should make you feel like you have too long to live.
