SSM Social Minister’s Case Dimissed

All New Briefs

Former Employee’s Fraud Claim Against Diocese Dismissed: A Missouri state court dismissed a fraud claim against the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City brought by the former director for social ministries of a local parish who was dismissed after a newspaper article disclosed that she was in a same-sex marriage.  Inquiry “into the knowing falsity of the Diocesan agents’ … representations to Plaintiff about her sexual orientation relative to her position in the Diocese would impermissibly entangle the Court in matters and decisions purely canonical, since the Court must necessarily examine the religious views and practices of the Diocese.”
