College Applicant Sues Claiming Rejection Because of Religious Beliefs

An applicant to Community College of Baltimore filed suit in a Maryland federal district court yesterday claiming that he was rejected from the radiation therapy program because he discussed his religious belief during his admissions interview.  The complaint (full text) in Buxton v. Kurtinitis, (D MD, filed 9/8/2014) contends that the situation is similar to that which led to a lawsuit lastt year by a different applicant who was similarly rejected. An ACLJ press release discusses yesterday's lawsuit.
