A Houston Judge Sues Federal Government After He Claims Mandatory LGBT Awareness Video Violated His Civil Rights!
HOUSTON — FEB 23 — A Houston Social Security judge says the federal government violated his civil rights because he was required to watch a 17-minute on-demand training video about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender inclusion and awareness in the workplace.
Judge Gary Suttles of Missouri City, Texas has been an administrative judge for 12 years with federal offices near Sam Houston Tollway and Bissonett. Judge Suttles is no stranger to the media spot light. Suttles was investigated by the Social Security Administration in 2014 after he was accused of ‘humiliating a gulf war vet.’
The lawsuit filed in federal court, contends the acting commissioner of the Social Security Administration violated his ‘freedom of religion’ when he was forced to view the LGBTQ+ video. The video included awareness, and training.
The lawsuit claims the mandatory video created a “religiously hostile work environment.”
