Educator conceived child out of wedlock, School fired her
Tyler — The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday reversed a judge's ruling that dismissed Jarretta Hamilton's lawsuit against Southland Christian School in St. Cloud.
Hamilton was teaching at the nondenominational school in 2009 when she married Samuel Treftz. About two months later, she and her husband met with principal Jon Ennis to request maternity leave.
During the meeting, Hamilton told Ennis the baby was conceived before the two were married. Hamilton was fired a short time later.
