Crystal Dixon Sued University Of Toledo
March 7, 2012 by staff
Crystal Dixon Sued University Of Toledo, Ex-administrator sues UT over firing which had been expected to eventually be done as far back as May when the Toledo Free Press provided an update, Dixon uses Web site to raise funds.
As the TFP article points out:
On the home page, Dixon provides supporters with two ways they can help: to send contributions to “help defray ongoing survival expenses,” or to give tax-deductible donations to her legal defense fund.
“[The site] was all done on her own to help her with her attorney Tom Sobecki’s costs,” said Brian Rooney, attorney and spokesman for Thomas More Law Center, which is representing Dixon. Rooney said while Dixon must pay civilian attorney’s fees to Sobecki, Thomas More is a Christian public interest law firm, and therefore will not charge Dixon.
That’s not made clear on the Dixon website, www.crystaldixon.com which could mislead people. There’s also this link from Thomas More Law Center that I was sent via email that in part says:
As a result of the University’s outrageous actions, the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor Michigan, today filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court, Northern District of Ohio against the University, its President, and its Vice President for Human Resources and Campus Safety. The lawsuit claims violations of Dixon’s constitutional rights to free speech and equal protection of the law.
The Law Center is being assisted by local Toledo attorney Tom Sobecki.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center commented, “It’s clear that radical hmosxls have an inordinate amount of influence over the University President. He openly brags about being friendly to ‘lsbn, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning individuals.’ But he doesn’t care about the constitutional free speech rights of Christians.”
This appears to be a small change up of the quote made by Thompson in May:
“The University of Toledo brags about being friendly to ‘lsbn, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning individuals.’ They apparently are also proud of their hostility toward Christians.”
The firing of Dixon was also included in this piece called Gay “Jihad” Across US.
Unless I’ve missed something, I don’t recall either the University or the University President “openly bragging” or being influenced by “radical hmosxls”, what was said was UT protects gay rights.
The issue was and still is does a person have the right to free speech with no consequences to their professional career. At least that’s how I understood it, and the University of Toledo appears to have said no, there can be consequences to free speech and Ms. Dixon disagrees appearing to feel that as a citizen she can say anything and face no professional consequences.
