Mormon Actress' Suit Gets National Attention (Mormon Actress Sues Over Profanity)
Associated Press 14Jan00 D2

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The lawsuit filed by LDS Church member Christina Axson-Flynn against the University of Utah has gained national attention. Axson-Flynn filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking unspecified damages because she claimed that the University discriminated against her for refusing to use profanity. The Associated Press picked up the story on Friday, and Mormon-News has reports of the news item in dozens of newspapers throughout the U.S.

Axson-Flynn's suit charges that the Theater Department at the University of Utah forced her out of the program after she refused to use profanity in parts assigned to her as part of the course work. She claims that she made an issue of the use of profanity with the Department before she joined the program, but was admitted anyway.

The Theater Department disputes the allegations, according to University spokesman Fred Esplin.
