Martin Gaskell dropped his federal religious discrimination suit when the university agreed to pay him $125,000. Frank Manion, his attorney from the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), tells OneNewsNow the professor was not selected to be director of the new MacAdam Student Observatory in 2007 because some of the members on the search committee were concerned that he was an evangelical Christian.
