Catholic school reaches settlement with former teacher

An attorney says a Catholic high school teacher who lost his job for being in a same-sex marriage has reached a settlement in which the Indianapolis school will help the teacher with future employment options.

Attorney Kathleen DeLaney announced the settlement with Cathedral High School in a written statement Tuesday. In it, the teacher thanks Cathedral for the opportunities and experiences that he has had teaching there and does not wish the school any harm.

Cathedral thanks the teacher for the years of service, contributions, and achievements.

It wasn't clear whether a monetary settlement was included.

Indianapolis Archbishop Charles Thompson forced Cathedral to part ways with the teacher last month. The separation happened days after Brebeuf Jesuit High School in Indianapolis defied a similar order. Neither teacher has been identified.
