Jennifer Maudlin v. Inside Out, Inc., et al
What's at Stake
The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Ohio filed a lawsuit on behalf of Springfield, OH resident Jennifer Maudlin, a single mother of two, against Inside Out, a religiously-based community organization.
The lawsuit alleges that Inside Out fired Maudlin in September 2012 after she divulged that she was pregnant. The complaint cites a pattern of hostile treatment toward other women who became pregnant while working at the organization.
According to the complaint, women who become pregnant while working at Inside Out face hostile treatment. Men who were single fathers or who are known to have engaged in non-marital sex were not subject to the same treatment.
