The court of appeals ruled in Louisiana College’s favor regarding a dispute with four former faculty members.
The court approved dismissal of the defamation lawsuit brought by the former employees. They say the court would be forced to choose sides in a dispute over Baptist theologies, which is a violation of the first amendment’s establishment clause. Attorneys for the college argued this was not a dispute appropriate for the civilian court.
