Freaked out by the Confederate Southern American reference

Tax & Biz has this post in which he scratches his head over the analysis of the panel (including Judges Williams and Michael and District Judge Floyd from South Carolina) in Chaplin v. DuPont Advance Fiber Systems, about Rule 11 sanctions and the award of attorneys' fees against Title VII claimants in an E.D. Va. case decided by Judge Hudson.

Notwithstanding the language cited, I don't believe the panel was trying to say that there could be a claim for "national origin" discrimination brought on behalf of persons of "Confederate Southern American descent."
