The Academy of the Holy Names is pushing back against a lawsuit filed by benefactors claiming the school is misrepresenting itself as Catholic by embracing “woke culture.”
The school, as well as the Florida Catholic Conference, filed petitions in late September to dismiss the case brought by Barbara and Anthony Scarpo, who are seeking a refund on a $1.3 million pledge made in 2017.
The Scarpos filed suit against the Academy and the Catholic Conference back in June, accusing the school of breaching contract by falsely promising a Catholic education.
Judge Paul Huey is set to hear the suit on Dec. 14.
