EAU CLAIRE (AP) - A man who says Regis Catholic Schools in Eau Claire rescinded an offer to hire him as president has filed a state discrimination complaint.
Tim Nelson says the offer to lead the Catholic schools was withdrawn because of speculation that he's gay. Regis announced on April 4 that Nelson would become president, but on May 2 Regis said it had hired Mark Gobler instead.
Nelson says two weeks after he was named president, school officials called to question him about an obituary for his father in which another man's name was listed next to his, indicating they were a couple. Nelson tells the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram the man is his best friend.
Regis attorneys say Nelson was not denied employment as president because of his gender or sexual preference.
