Texas Workforce Commission Issues Charge Of Discrimination Against Fox

Sports Southwest

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.

"The Texas Workforce Commission issuing a Charge of Discrimination

against Fox Sports Southwest and conducting an investigation is a

serious step toward holding Fox Sports accountable for violating the

law and the religious liberty of Craig James," said Hiram Sasser,

Liberty Institute Managing Director of Strategic Litigation.
