Teacher Fired for Out-of-Wedlock Pregnancy Files Lawsuit

A Knox County private school teacher is suing the school that fired her when administrators discovered she was pregnant but unmarried, Knoxnews reports. The school’s attorney says that Concord Christian School had the right to fire Tabatha Hutson under a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that recognized a “ministerial exception” to employment discrimination laws. Hutson’s attorney claims that since Hutson, a Catholic, was hired at a Baptist school for her expertise in the curriculum and not because of a ministerial calling, the exception does not apply.
