CINCINNATI- An unmarried Catholic school teacher who claims she was fired because she was pregnant was not discriminated against according to the Cincinnati Archdiocese. The archdiocese filed its response to Kathleen Quinlan's lawsuit saying there is no factual basis for her claims and wants the lawsuit thrown out. Quinlan sued saying her firing was discriminatory because men who engaged in premarital sex don't face the same consequences. The archdiocese also says Quinlan violated her contract and that a "ministerial exception" doctrine providing constitutional protection of freedom of religion bars her suit. Her lawyer says otherwise.
