Suit Accuses Author Nicholas Sparks of Discrimination Against Jewish-Quaker School Headmaster

Times of Israel reports on a lawsuit filed last week against popular author Nicholas Sparks by the fired head of The Epiphany School of Global Studies. The K-12 school in New Bern, North Carolina was founded by Sparks. The suit claims that Sparks and other members of the school's board engaged in a campaign to humiliate and defame plaintiff Saul Hillel Benjamin by displaying contempt for his Jewish heritage and Quaker faith. The Oct. 2 lawsuit was filed in North Carolina federal district court.
