Joshua was fired from his job at another local Catholic school, and an appeals court ruled to allow his lawsuit against the archdiocese to continue Tuesday.

The ruling among a panel of the Indiana Court of Appeals was unanimous and reverses the decision of a Marion County court that dismissed Joshua Payne-Elliott's suit against the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

He said there were no hard feelings and that it was part of the game. Justin Herbert on Cam Heyward’s punches: "I haven’t really seen it. He’s a tough player. Football is an emotional game. Whatever happened, happened in the game.

Payne-Elliott worked for Cathedral High School as a world language and social studies teacher for 13 years before being fired in June 2019 for marrying Layton Payne-Elliott, a teacher at Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School, in 2017.

The firing occurred after the archdiocese mandated that all schools under its umbrella enforce a morality clause that would ban employees from entering into same-sex marriages.

Joshua was fired by Cathedral, but Brebeuf refused to fire Layton, causing the archdiocese to attempt to strip Brebeuf of its status as a Catholic school, which prompted intervention from The Vatican.

Joshua filed his lawsuit in July 2019, accusing the archdiocese of interfering with his contract with Cathedral, and saying they should not have had the authority to require his firing because his employment contract was with the school, not the church.

The lawsuit was dismissed in May, based on several trial court rules, of which the appeals panel said were either incorrect or prematurely used to throw the case out, according to The Indianapolis Star.

By reversing the decision, the appeals court sent Payne-Elliott's case back to court, a decision praised by LGBTQ advocates.

"Joshua Payne-Elliott just wanted the chance to make his case in court. The Indiana Court of Appeals today ruled that he will get that opportunity," Greg Nevins, senior counsel for Lambda Legal, an LGBT rights group, said in a statement Tuesday, calling the reversal "wonderful."

The archdiocese asked the lower court in August 2019 to dismiss Payne-Elliott's lawsuit, citing the First Amendment as a defense.

An attorney representing the archdiocese in the case said Wednesday in a statement that the "Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld the constitutional right of Catholic schools to hire teachers who fully support the schools' Catholic mission."

LSU’s top three head-coaching targets reportedly revealed

  LSU’s top three head-coaching targets reportedly revealed Kentucky's Mark Stoops was listed at No. 3 behind Jimbo Fisher and Bill O’Brien. VERY Good LSU source just saw my report and told me the LSU list is this 1. Jimbo Fischer2. Bill O Brien3. Mark Stoops In that order — Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) November 19, 2021 The list makes sense. Fisher has been a known top target for LSU’s athletic director. O’Brien is the current offensive coordinator at Alabama. He previously was the head coach of the Houston Texans and won the AFC South four times in six seasons. O’Brien also coached Penn State for two seasons before James Franklin took over.

"Today's ruling doesn't address this core issue, and we're confident that when the courts finally do, they will respect this fundamental right," said Luke Goodrich, the vice president and senior counsel at Becket, a legal organization focused on religious liberty.
