Ohio – A jury has awarded a Catholic school teacher over $170,000 in her discrimination case. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the federal jury found in favor of Christa Dias who alleged the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati discriminated against her in firing her due to her becoming pregnant through artificial insemination.

Dias was accused by her employer of violating church doctrine and breaking her contract. The discrimination case the second of its kind in the past couple of years to be filed over an unmarried teacher being fired according to the AP.
