Ministerial Exception Claim Requires Case-Specific Factual Analysis:  In Collette v. Archdiocese of Chicago, (ND IL, July 29, 2016), an Illinois federal district court refused to dismiss an employment discrimination suit brought by plaintiff who for 17 years was employed as the Director of Worship and Director of Music at Holy Family Parish in Inverness, Illinois.  He was dismissed when it was learned he was planning to marry his same-sex partner. The court is holding that whether plaintiff is a “ministerial” employee requires a fact-specific analysis.
