Wrestling Coach Sues for Religious Discrimination

The Arab American News, Posted: Aug 09, 2009

DEARBORN, Mich.--Longtime Fordson High School wrestling coach Gerald Marszalek has filed a federal lawsuit against Dearborn Public Schools and Fordson principal Imad Fadlallah, claiming he was fired because of his religious beliefs, reports The Arab American News. Fadlallah reportedly terminated Marszalek in 2008 for allegedly failing to keep a volunteer assistant coach, who is a Christian evangelical pastor away from the team. The assistant coach had been accused of trying to convert Muslim students. The news report says that "the school district has not yet offered direct comment on the lawsuit, but officials have said that coaches are 'at-will' employees, hired and fired by principals."
