According to critics, the University of Nebraska at Lincoln has ended its witch hunt. It settled with an unnamed self-described witch who alleged that she was fired after coming out of the figurative broom closet.
The settlement was for $40,000, though the University insisted the settlement was “solely to compromise the claim … without admitting the validity of plaintiff’s contention or any allegations of wrongdoing by the defendants.”
The witch said she was the director of a youth program in 2007 when she revealed her religious views to an associate dean.
She filed a complaint with the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission, which found reasonable cause to believe religious discrimination had taken place.
