Conservative Group Representing Former Jackson Teacher, Suing to Get Job Back

JACKSON TWP., Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – An Arizona-based Christian legal advocacy group has come to the aid of a former Jackson Local School District teacher.

She lost her job amidst efforts by two middle school students to change their gender identity.

Vivian Geraghty says she was forced to resign from her job back in August.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys is suing the district in federal court.

Geraghty told the district she could not address the children differently because it would violate her religious beliefs.

The attorneys say the sides might have been able to find some middle ground between the parties.

An injunction filed in the case asks that Geraghty be immediately returned to her job.
