Carla Hale, who was fired from her job at a Catholic high school earlier this year after her partner was listed in her mother’s obituary, has reached a settlement with the Diocese of Columbus. The terms of the settlement are confidential, but Hale will receive some “acknowledgment” of her years of service. One thing is clear: Hale won’t be returning to Bishop Watterson High School, where she had been a gym teacher for 19 years. Instead, she will act as a substitute teacher in the region.
