HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - An attorney for a Roman Catholic school in New Jersey is set to ask a judge to reconsider dismissing a lawsuit filed by a former employee who says she was fired because she’s married to a woman.

The Record reports (https://bit.ly/2e6wjK4 ) oral arguments are planned on Friday regarding a request by Paramus Catholic High School to dismiss the lawsuit.

Kate Drumgoole says the school violated state discrimination laws by firing her as dean of guidance and head coach of the basketball team after learning she married a woman.

The school has said Drumgoole was fired because she’s in a same-sex marriage. An attorney for the school has said it’s lawful for churches to require that employees subscribe to their tenets.

Drumgoole’s attorney says the school is repackaging old arguments.
