DESERT HOT SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — A woman who said she lost her job because she is Mormon is suing three Coachella Valley mobile-home parks.

Judy Clark of Thermal said she was suspended and never asked to return to her job as a mobile-home saleswoman in 2003. She said that just a few weeks earlier, she had found a memo that referred to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a cult and said that its activities should be banned from the parks.

Parks co-owner Tim Manthei said Clark's suspension was based purely on performance and that members of all faiths are welcome as employees.

In the suit, set to go to trial Sept. 15, Clark said she is owed nearly $90,000 in sales commissions and other damages.
