Florida State University to pay $95K after Catholic student leader fired over religious beliefs on Black Lives Matter

Florida State University settled a lawsuit in federal court and issued a statement affirming its commitment to protecting students’ First Amendment rights after refusing to defend Student Senate President Jack Denton, a Catholic fired for expressing his religious beliefs last year.

In a settlement agreement reached last week, FSU agreed to issue a statement regarding its commitment to protecting students’ First Amendment rights on campus, specifically in student government.

FSU will restore $1,050 in Denton’s lost wages, pay $10,000 in damages to him and cover nearly $84,000 in attorneys’ fees.
