Ministerial Exception Bars Discrimination Claims Against Salvation Army
In Rogers v. Salvation Army, (ED MI, May 11, 2015), a Michigan federal district court held that the ministerial exception doctrine bars race and age discrimination claims against The Salvation Army ("TSA") by plaintiff who, when terminated, was employed as a Spiritual Counselor by TSA. The court also rejected plaintiff's discrimination and harassment claims on the merits.
