News Summary: UK court overturns Facebook demotion
Friday - 11/16/2012, 4:46pm EST
(AP) - PUNISHED: Britain's High Court ruled Friday that a man had been unfairly stripped of a management position and demoted for saying in a Facebook post that he was opposed to gay marriage.
COURT RULING: The court said the Trafford Housing Trust breached Adrian Smith's contract and a judge added that Smith had not done anything wrong. Smith had written on Facebook that gay weddings in churches would be "an equality too far."
EVOLVING LAW: In Britain, same-sex couples can form civil partnerships that carry the same legal rights marriages do. The government plans to introduce legislation allowing civil marriages as well.
