How First Liberty defended Dr. Eric Walsh

In May 2014, the State of Georgia’s Department of Public Health hired Dr. Walsh as a district health director.

But soon after Dr. Walsh accepted the offer, state officials reviewed recordings of sermons he preached as a lay minister.

After inspecting his sermons, they fired him.

First Liberty Institute filed a lawsuit against the State of Georgia on behalf of Dr. Walsh, contending that no one should be fired from their job because of something they said in a sermon.

Soon after, the State of Georgia paid $225,000 to settle Dr. Walsh’s religious discrimination lawsuit.
