Alumnus CJ Graves ’13, has brought an employment discrimination lawsuit on behalf of client Noel M. King against local Warner Pacific College. King, a member of the Jewish faith, was interviewed for a teaching position, but was told by WPC, a Christ-faith institution, that he wasn’t hired because he is not a “Christ-follower”. The case is relatively uncommon, says Graves. “It is actually based on a unique Oregon statute that I do not believe has been tested in court,…I’m fairly confident it is a new issue.”
