Former guidance director files lawsuit after being fired for her same-sex marriage

Lynn Starkey, former co-director of guidance at Roncalli High School, has filed a lawsuit against the school and the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

On May 1, Starkey learned her contract wasn’t being renewed after working at the school for 39 years.

The school says Starkey’s same-sex marriage violates her written employment agreement.

Shelly Fitzgerald, Roncalli’s other co-director of guidance, was also let go from the school over her same-sex marriage. Fitzgerald has said she intends to sue the Archdiocese.
