C. Martin Gaskell v. University of Kentucky
On July 10, 2009, C. Martin Gaskell filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court in Kentucky against the University of Kentucky, alleging that he was turned down for the position of Director of the MacAdam Student Observatory on the basis of his religious beliefs and his expression of those beliefs.
On November 23, 2010, the court denied the defendant's and the plaintiff's requests for summary judgment, which sets the stage for a jury trial.
On January 18, 2011, the parties reached a settlement in which Gaskell received $125,000. The University did not admit any wrongdoing.
