9 a.m. 93S02-1310-EX-704. Fishers Adolescent Catholic Enrichment Society, Inc. ("FACES") provided enrichment opportunities to the homeschooled children of its member families. One family, the Bridgewaters, filed a complaint with the Indiana Civil Rights Commission ("ICRC") alleging FACES discriminated against their daughter by failing to accommodate her medical disability at a FACES sponsored dinner-dance. Thereafter, FACES expelled the Bridgewaters. The ICRC concluded that although FACES did not fail to accommodate the daughter's disability, it did commit unlawful discrimination by expelling the Bridgewaters in retaliation for their filing the complaint. The Court of Appeals affirmed, in part. Fishers Adolescent Catholic Enrichment Soc'y Inc. v. Bridgewater, 990 N.E.2d 29 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.

  1. Here an atheist worries about the Indiana rules, when the real and demonstrated problems are (1) anti-Christian bias and (2) a refusal to follow their own rules as to the Indiana Board of Law Examiners! Such sweet, sweet irony! See, e.g. https://www.scribd.com/doc/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert and https://www.scribd.com/doc/312841269/Thomas-More-Society-Amicus-Brown-v-Ind-Bd-of-Law-Examiners

  2. Child Advocates profited over 6 million last year alone. They are bullies & do not act in children's best interests but rather their own. They placed my children full time with their unlicensed alcoholic father despite recommendations for over 5 yrs. Meanwhile my children have medical conditions left untreated living with their father and their education has suffered greatly. Get these people terminated!!!
