Texas Workforce Commission Issues Charge Of Discrimination Against Fox
PLANO, Texas, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following
receipt of Craig James' formal complaint, the Texas Workforce
Commission (TWC) issued a Charge of Discrimination against Fox Sports
Southwest for terminating the on-air position of well-known college
football analyst Craig James because of his religious beliefs about
marriage. The Texas agency will now undertake an investigation of Fox
Sports Southwest. Liberty Institute filed the complaint on behalf of
Mr. James, who retained the national group of religious freedom
attorneys to prosecute his employment religious discrimination claim
in late 2013.
