Sumner v. Simpson University, 077302

Held that a fired theological seminary dean's claim for breach of contract was not barred by the ministerial exception, a doctrine that prevents ministers from bringing certain types of claims against their employers, because there was no evidence that the claim would excessively entangle the court in religious matters. Reversed the summary adjudication of her breach-of-contract claim.
