Back in 1999 a man named Robert Jordan filed a lawsuit because the city of New London in Connecticut, US, refused to hire him as a full time police officer. Jordan worked for the State Department of Corrections and had a Bachelor’s degree in literature. He was refused an interview for a position at the local police station, so he decided to take his matter to court. As it turned out, he wasn’t allowed to become a cop because his IQ was too high for such a position. The judge ruled the case in favor of the officials, who had denied Jordan the interview. Not only did he not receive the chance to become a police officer, but he also learned that he wasn’t the only one with a case like this.


The judge told him that all applicants with high IQ were denied the interviews! According to Jordan, it was a type of discrimination similar to race, religion and gender.
