The University of Kentucky and an astronomy professor have reached a settlement after the school was sued for depriving the astronomer of a job because of his Christian beliefs.

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.

"There's no question that based on the evidence that we uncovered in this case that that became a motivating factor in denying Gaskell the job," Manion explains.
