A Hamline University professor who was fired after showing images of Muhammad in her art class is now reportedly filing a lawsuit against the school.
Dr. Erika Lopez Prater, who lost her job as an art professor after showing the images in a course on Islamic art, filed the legal action on Tuesday, according to FOX 9 Minneapolis-St. Paul.
“Hamline’s actions and statements may have constituted religious discrimination, defamation, and other violations of law,” attorneys representing Prater said, according to FOX 9.
“Hamline’s actions have caused significant damage to Dr. López Prater. In the near term, she has lost the income from her adjunct position. She alleges she also suffered significant emotional distress due to her mistreatment by Hamline,” they continued.
