Former vice principal to sue Eastside Catholic High School

SEATTLE — Mark Zmuda, who was forced out of his job as vice principal at Eastside Catholic High School, says he plans to file a lawsuit against the school and the Seattle Archdiocese on Friday.
The departure in December of the popular teacher, coach and vice principal was protested around the region and with two online petitions.
The school and the church decided Zmuda couldn’t continue in his job after they learned he had married his same-sex partner. They cited an employment agreement Zmuda had signed that said his public behaviors would at all times be consistent with the values and teachings of the Catholic Church.
The lawsuit to be filed in King County Superior Court accuses the school and the church of discrimination, wrongful termination and violation of the state consumer protection laws.
