Craig James Sues Fox Sports over Firing
Aug 3 15
Craig James filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against Fox Sports that contends he was fired because he had expressed opposition to gay marriage during a failed run for the U.S. Senate. The former running back for Southern Methodist University and the New England Patriots is seeking at least $100,000 in damages. Fox hired him in August 2013 - months after he lost the Texas Senate primary to Ted Cruz - only to fire him days later. James filed his suit in Dallas County, where he is seeking a jury trial to hear claims against the network that include breach of contract and violations of state law. Fox Sports did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on the lawsuit, and a Dallas attorney for the network did not immediately return a call for comment.
