The Supreme Court on Monday rejected Evans v. Georgia Regional Hospital, a case about a Georgia security guard who said she was harassed at work because she is a lesbian.

Attorneys representing Jameka Evans, the security guard, wanted the high court to overturn an 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling and decide that sexual orientation discrimination violates the Civil Rights Act.

Evans also had some prominent supporters in her corner urging the justices to hear her case. Facebook, Microsoft, and Starbucks were included among 76 businesses that filed a brief in October urging the Supreme Court to hear Evans' case.
