Methodist-Founded University Punishes Educator over Christian Magazines

DePauw University, founded by the Methodist Church, inflicted heavy punishment against instructor Janis Price because she made Christian magazines available in her classroom. In the age of "tolerance", Neil Abrams, vice president for academic affairs, found the availability of Christian material "intolerable." Price was placed on probation. Her pay was cut. Her teaching duties were suspended.

Price had filed a lawsuit against DePauw, claming her First Amendment rights were violated and DePauw created a hostile work environment. Unfortunately, Price's legal options have run-out - the appeal she filed, with the Indiana Supreme Count was refused.
