According to the Topeka Capital-Journal,  a Kansas federal district court jury rejected a religious discrimination claim by a former employee in the business services division in the state Secretary of State’s office.  Plaintiff Courtney Canfield claimed that assistant secretary of state Gary Laughlin had told Canfield’s grandmother– a long-time friend of Lauglin’s– that Canfield had been fired because she did not attended church. At trial, the secretary of state’s office said it had fired Canfield for sporadic attendance, breaching office cellpohne policies and creating a distraction for other employees.
