LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A woman who claims she was fired from a public library for refusing to remove a necklace with a cross on it sued the Logan County public library last week in federal court, saying her First Amendment rights were violated.
Kimberly Draper's former supervisor, library director Linda Kompanik, called the charge ''untrue.'' She said Draper was dismissed for other, unspecified reasons.
According to the suit, a library dress code bans ''religious, political or potentially offensive decoration.''
Draper filed suit in U.S. District Court at Bowling Green with aid from Pat Robertson's American Center for Law and Justice.
