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.
Cincinnati Verdict Points Toward Success In Carla Hale Case
The attorney for fired Bishop Watterson High School teacher Carla Hale says he’s encouraged by a verdict rendered by a Cincinnati jury on Monday. The jury found the Cincinnati Catholic archdiocese discriminated against a teacher who was fired after becoming pregnant via artificial insemination. The jury awarded former Cincinnati teacher Christa Dias $170,000. Tom Tootle represents plaintiff Carla Hale who was fired according to her employer for revealing her same-sex “quasi-spousal” relationship.
“It certainly gives us a strong indication of the strength of our case. It’s certainly is a strong indication of success,” says Tootle.
In both cases the Catholic Church says the teachers violated the terms of their contracts.
