Emily Herx's jury trial verdict was featured in Reader's Digest Magazine's July 2015 publication "A Catholic School Teacher Received IVF. Then She Was Fired for Being Immoral. Can a Catholic school dismiss an educator for breaking church tenets by receiving IVF for infertility?"
Team DeLaney and friends enjoyed the third annual Pickled Pedaler firm outing in downtown Indianapolis on June 12, 2015.
On April 30, 2015, Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) delivered remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives during a debate on House Joint Resolution 43. The resolution seeks to overturn a Washington, D.C. law which makes it illegal to fire an employee based on personal decisions regarding his or her own reproductive health. Duckworth cited the case of Emily Herx in her arguments against passing H.J. Res. 43, as a prime example of the type of workplace discrimination with the D.C. law prevents. In her floor speech Duckworth said, "Employees like Emily Herx should be judged at work based on their job performance, not on private decisions they make with their families and doctors." The video of Rep. Duckworth's remarks is available here.
