Christian university fires professor for getting pregnant out of wedlock, suit claims

Oregonian

An assistant professor who says she was fired after she told supervisors at Northwest Christian University that she was pregnant out of wedlock filed a $650,000 lawsuit Tuesday against her former employer.
The supervisors gave Coty Richardson an ultimatum: Get married immediately or declare her pregnancy a mistake and sever links with her romantic partner of 12 years, the suit alleges.
Richardson is expecting a baby in November, according to the suit filed in Lane County Circuit Court.
A spokeswoman for the small liberal arts university in Eugene didn't immediately return a request seeking comment.
