Fired Gay Teacher Files Complaint With City Department
As expected, the Watterson teacher who says she was fired for being gay filed her complaint with a city office today.
Carla Haleâ€™s attorney, Tom Tootle, said it could be a couple of weeks before the Columbus Community Relations Commission responds to Haleâ€™s complaint about her firing from Bishop Watterson High School.
In the letter, Hale wrote she was fired based on her sexual orientation; an act she called a â€œflagrant and unapologeticâ€ violation of city code.
Hale stated she is open to meeting with the Columbus Catholic Diocese to reach a resolution.
The former physical education teacher was fired in late March after the Diocese received an anonymous letter noting Hale listed her same-sex partner in an obituary.
The Diocese has said its employees cannot go against church teachings.
