The matter was before the court upon the cross-appeals of debtor and a terminated employee of the decision of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois denying debtor's motion to hold the terminated employee and his counsel in contempt for suing debtor for employment discrimination in a California state court after confirmation of debtor's plan of reorganization was confirmed.
Ruling: 
Bankruptcy court erred in holding that terminated employee's postpetition, preconfirmation cause of action for discrimination was not barred by discharge.
