Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita is leading a 16-state coalition defending the right of Roncalli High School to uphold church teachings on same-sex marriage in its hiring and firing decisions.
On Tuesday, Rokita filed an amicus brief in support of Roncalli and the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
Roncalli is a Catholic High School in Indianapolis.
A former guidance counselor in a same-sex marriage filed a lawsuit against Roncalli and the Archdiocese after Roncalli decided to not renew her contract.
In August, a federal district court ruled in Roncalli’s favor.
That former counselor filed an appeal in the 7th U.S. Circuit of Appeals.
