CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / COSTA MESA. TBN settles gay job bias suit. By
Joseph Serna.. A broadcast engineer at a Christian television network in
Orange County settled a lawsuit against Trinity Broadcasting Network in
which he said he was discriminated against because he is gay. The engineer
said he had been told to act "straight.
Brian Dugger was seeking more than $2.5 million in damages, but no details
on the settlement were released.
Dugger said that his homosexuality became an issue when company co-founder
and Chairman Paul Crouch Sr. gave control to his son, Paul Crouch Jr., and
his wife, Jan. The suit said the younger Crouch told Dugger to dress less
"gay," wear less jewelry and to act "straight. Dugger said the younger
Crouch also insulted him on live television.
