Suit Against Jeweler Says Employee Was Fired For Saying That Jews Killed Jesus

The New York Daily News last week reported on a lawsuit filed in federal district court in Manhattan by a former marketing executive at the upscale jeweler, Tiffany & Co.  Kristin Rightnour, a devout Catholic, says she was reprimanded and placed on probation for telling a Jewish colleague, in a conversation about Easter, that Catholics believe the Jewish people killed Jesus. Then, she alleges, she was skipped over for promotion and eventually fired after she filed a complaint with the EEOC.
