A woman is suing a Christian college for allegedly firing her because she engaged in premarital sex and became pregnant.
Teri James is claiming wrongful termination in her lawsuit against San Diego Christian College in El Cajon.
At a news conference today, James' attorney Gloria Allred claimed, "The HR director indicated that she was not being fired because she was pregnant. Instead, she was being terminated because she had premarital sex."
