Missouri State Settles Freedom of Conscience Lawsuit

November 13, 2006

In a quick turn of events, Missouri State University didn’t hesitate to settle a freedom of conscience lawsuit that was filed less then two weeks ago. The lawsuit was filed in response to an incident in which student Emily Brooker was interrogated for two and a half hours by faculty members who attacked her religious beliefs concerning homosexuality and threatened to withhold her degree. As part of the settlement, the university will pay Brooker’s attorneys’ fees and waive her tuition for graduate school.
