Hosanna-Tabor and Who is a Minister, cont.

All New Briefs

Catholic School Principal’s Title VII Suit Dismissed Under “Ministerial Exception”: a New York federal district court held that the “ministerial exception” prevents a lay principal of a Catholic elementary school from suing for employment discrimination.  The principal alleged that her employment was terminated as a result of gender discrimination and retaliation. In relying on the ministerial exception doctrine in Hosanna-Tabor the district court said “minister” for purposes of the ministerial exception has a far broader meaning than it does for only internal Church purposes.  Thus, church schools select their own workers.
