The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission today filed a federal lawsuit against WBAL-TV and its parent company, the Hearst Corp., for alleged sex discrimination against former Channel 11 anchor Ruth Ann "Rudy" Miller.The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, claims WBAL-TV violated the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act by paying Miller less than it paid male anchors for "substantially equal work," subjecting her to "different assignments, terms and conditions and privileges of employment" because she is a woman, and retaliating against her by firing her in 1989 when she demanded equal pay.EEOC chairman Evan J. Kemp Jr. said today that the agency found Miller to be "a victim of discrimination -- she was paid less and then fired because she is a woman."

Lots of big names were being tossed around at Share Our Strength's annual Taste of the Nation. However, those names didn't belong to any of the hundreds of guests. They belonged to what those guests were eating. Mushroom gnocchi with a Gruyere fondue and truffle oil, slow-roasted pork rib marinated in lemon grass and ginger with seaweed salad and cucumbers, tenderloin of pork dusted with ground cumin served on a corn and quinoa salad with grilled onion and avocado relish, Kona coffee-crusted sirloin with caramelized shallot butter - those were just a few phrases being bandied about, courtesy of more than 20 local chefs.

Since the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission takes only 1 percent of the complaints filed with it to court, we are a little puzzled as to why Rudy Miller's case has become one of them. We are also more than a little concerned.Ms. Miller charges that WBAL-TV discriminated against her on the basis of sex while she was employed as what is generally referred to as a "celebrity anchorperson." EEOC says she was paid less than male anchorpersons performing "substantially equal work." Not offering "equal" pay for only "substantially equal" work hardly sounds unfair, much less illegal.

"It's like living in a treehouse," said Rudy Miller, WMAR-TV's morning news anchor, describing her Hill Farm home in Lutherville.The spacious contemporary house backs to a small forest dense enough that it's hard to see other houses even with most of the leaves gone.The house is situated on 3 acres on a sloping lot, with a large deck that extends off the kitchen and family room that sits one floor off the ground, with mature trees all around.

Rudy Miller wants you to know - up front - that she is not the belle of Cinderella's ball. True, the former TV anchor is performing in Pumpkin Theatre's production of Cinderella. But, she insists, she is playing only a small part. "She's very cautious about overshadowing some of the people in the show who have bigger roles. She's just one of the gang," Pumpkin producer/director Todd Pearthree says of Miller, who has been vice president of marketing and community relations for LifeBridge Health since 1999.
