CJ Graves ’13 represents client in discrimination case against Warner Pacific College

December 18, 2015

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.”
