Pro-life Nurse Wins 'Conscience' Case

Friday, 31 May 2002 12:00 AM

A federal jury in California has awarded Michele Diaz $47,000, an amount that includes back pay and emotional damages. The Virginia-based American Center for Law & Justice, which represented Diaz, said the verdict "sends a very clear message that the conscience rights of employees must be respected by employers everywhere."

Riverside County, which operates the tax-funded health clinic, said it would petition for a new trial, according to a report in the Washington Times.

The jury found Riverside County guilty of infringing on Diaz's freedom of speech and religion, and it said the county didn't offer reasonable accommodation for her religious beliefs.
