Mercer Island High School associate principal and athletic director Mark Zmuda recently settled his discrimination lawsuit with Eastside Catholic High School. According to news reports, Zmuda and the Archdiocese of Seattle agreed to end the lawsuit last week.
Zmuda, formerly a vice principal at Eastside Catholic, was suing Eastside Catholic School and the Archdiocese of Seattle for discrimination, breach of contract, tortious interference with business expectancy and violation of consumer protection act. Zmuda filed the lawsuit in March after he was dismissed from his position at the school in December of 2013. He was forced to resign after the school discovered Zmuda had married his partner in a legal same-sex marriage. Sister Mary Tracy, president and CEO of Eastside Catholic, said at the time, the decision for dismissal was based on Zmuda being in violation of the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Zmuda was approved to become associate principal at Mercer Island High School in May.

Sienna Colburn, a student at Eastside Catholic School in Sammamish, led the charge in a movement to support Mark Zmuda, a former vice principal who was fired last December for being married to a man. Sienna was a sophomore on the swim team coached by Mr. Z.
Outraged by his unfair firing, she posted to Twitter #savemrz2013. A social media campaign to Keep Mr. Z followed her tweet, and what ensued was a groundswell of support. Hundreds of students from Eastside Catholic and neighboring high schools organized walk-outs and sit-ins; the swim team posted a banner reading 'We swim for Zmuda' at a swim meet; alumni conducted rallies and warned the school they would stop donating; parents threatened to remove their children from Eastside Catholic; and a petition calling for Zmuda's reinstatement garnered more than 20,000 signatures. Student activists also marked January 31 as Z Day and urged Zmuda's supporters to wear orange, one of the school's colors, and to join in a minute of silence to show support for Mr. Z.
The students at Eastside Catholic bravely stood for the right to love and spoke out against injustice. Zmuda says, 'It is those memories I will cherish and remember after all that transpired.' Though Eastside Catholic refused to reinstate Zmuda, he has accepted a position as Associate Principal and Director of Athletic Programs at Mercer Island High School.

Mercer Island High School athletic director Mark Zmuda said the issue was a clerical error that was self-reported in mid-October. Beyond that, Zmuda said he was unable to comment further on the ineligibility.

The students were angry, as were a whole heck of a lot of parents and alumni, that Mark Zmuda, the school's vice principal, was forced to leave his job because the Church found out he had legally married a man earlier that summer. Allegedly, the Archbishop ordered the firing, but the nun who was in charge said that wasn't the case and, well, to this day, nobody is really sure exactly why or how it went down. The point is though, that the students - the future leadership and membership of the Church - had had enough and wanted to do something about it.
And we are starting to see this happen again and again around the rest of the country.
[NOTE: Mark Zmuda has since been hired by Mercer Island High School as associate principal effective July 1, 2014, and he is also now the school's athletic director. According to a release from the district, Zmuda was chosen from more than 60 applicants for the position.]
