MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) - A state labor investigator has found probable cause that the Marshfield School District discriminated against the high school dance coach who used an edited version of a controversial song in a performance.

The district fired Lisa Loling in 2013 after the dance team performed to “Blurred Lines” at halftime during a football game. Critics say the Robin Thicke song is demeaning to women.

Joling filed a complaint with the state Equal Rights Office claimed she was discriminated against because she’s a woman. She noted that male coaches were not fired for playing similar music.

News-Herald Media (https://mnhne.ws/1IyCaih ) says an administrative law judge will hold a hearing Jan. 14 in Wisconsin Rapids to determine whether the district violated state law.
