The State

October 22, 1987

The state Fair Employment and Housing Commission has admitted that it has no power to stop discrimination against most doctors at hospitals who must go to court with complaints of bias. The panel voted 4 to 0 in San Francisco to dismiss, for lack of jurisdiction, a sex-discrimination complaint by physician Charles Gilman, who said Children's Hospital in San Diego told him in 1983 that only women would be hired to treat sexually abused children. The commission did not say whether the hospital could legally bar men from the job, ruling instead that it could not consider the issue because its authority extends only to complaints by employees and prospective employees. Gilman could appeal the ruling to Superior Court, officials said.
