Supreme Court sides with Catholic schools in employment suit

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court is siding with two Catholic schools in a ruling that underscores that certain employees of religious schools, hospitals and social service centers can’t sue for employment discrimination. The high court’s ruling on Wednesday was 7-2. The justices had previously said in a unanimous 2012 decision that the Constitution prevents ministers from suing their churches for employment discrimination. But the court didn't specifically define at that time who counts as a minister. The new ruling makes that clear.
