Colin Collette, Music Director at Holy Family Catholic Church in Inverness (Illinois) for 17 years, was fired in 2014 after he publicized his same-sex marriage engagement. He filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Chicago and the parish where he worked, yet the Church brought up a procedural motion to have the case dismissed. Last week, a federal judge declined to dismiss the complaint. The fired Music Director will now continue his lawsuit and seek reinstatement, back pay and benefits, damages and attorneys’ fees.
