Amicus Briefs NWLC Litigation

The National Women’s Law Center, along with our law firm partner Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan and 37 other organizations, filed an amicus brief in the 10th Circuit Court in support of Gregory Tucker, an employee at Faith Christian Academy (FCA) who was fired after speaking out against race discrimination. FCA is attempting to strip Mr. Tucker of his civil rights protections using the “ministerial exception,” a doctrine designed to let houses of worship hire their own faith leaders. The arguments made by FCA are yet another dangerous example of employers seeking to use religion as a means by which they can deny employees workplace protections. For more background on the case, please read our blog.
