Liberty University is asking a federal court to stop a former employee from disclosing confidential information and documents amid a legal battle over claims that the evangelical Christian school wrongfully fired him for speaking out about how it handled sexual assault allegations.
Scott Lamb, formerly the school’s senior vice president of communications, sued the Lynchburg-based university and claimed that he was dismissed because he expressed concern over how Liberty officials handled sexual assault claims.
Liberty filed a request for a temporary restraining order last Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia against Lamb, arguing that he is still bound to his confidentiality agreement with the university.

“The only transparency we’re seeing here is that this is a transparent attempt for @LibertyU to protect itself… what the school needs is an audit of structure, culture, and policy.” -Save71’s @Kfaithcovingtonhttps://t.co/MkLbYN7lNT
