Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Trial Underway For Pregnant Teacher Fired From Catholic School
A Catholic teacher who was fired after becoming pregnant through artificial insemination is set to testify on the second day of trial in her lawsuit against a Roman Catholic archdiocese and two of its schools.
Christa Dias sued the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and the schools over her 2010 dismissal, contending they fired her simply because she was pregnant and unmarried.
Her attorney told a federal jury in opening statements yesterday that the firing violated the law prohibiting pregnancy discrimination.
The archdiocese’s attorney told jurors there was no discrimination and that Dias was fired for violating her contract that required her to abide by Catholic doctrine.
