US ‘Christian roommate’ complaint thrown out
An American woman who placed an advert in her church for a Christian roommate has had a complaint against her dismissed. The unnamed single woman from Michigan had been landed with a civil rights complaint for the advert and was facing a big fine. But following intervention from a leading US religious liberty group, which had labelled the case "absurd”, the complaint against the 31-year-old woman was thrown out. Joel Oster, from the Alliance Defense Fund legal group, welcomed the decision, saying it was right that the "frivolous complaint” had been dismissed.
