The LMU Case

FCDF successfully defended a devout Catholic woman who had worked for fifteen years at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), an ostensibly “Catholic” university. She was suspended by LMU after being accused of committing a “hate crime” by a self-proclaimed “gender-neutral” woman. The “hate crime”: respectfully “dialoguing”with the woman about a basic tenet of the Catholic faith that there are only two genders: male and female. After our successful representation, LMU restored that employee to her position without any loss of pay or benefits. In a letter she recently sent us she wrote:

I was very blessed, to have been referred to you. I was frantic and you calmed me down. [Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund] gave me encouragement and steadied me. And then you turned the table around on the whole issue to go on the attack. It would have really damaged me and my family financially if we had to pay for the quality of legal work you gave us so willingly offered through the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund.
