Cherry Creek Mortgage and UnitedHealth Group discriminates LGBT people within its company but has no problem when it comes to making money with you.

Cherry Creek has discriminated against one of its lesbian employees and her wife.

Indeed, Judith Dominguez (on the left) saw the health insurance of her wife, Patricia Martinez, revoked by the company.

Judith and Patricia discovered that not only was the insurance coverage canceled, but they retroactively retracted all coverage from the previous year.

They find themselves with a lot of debts as Patricia had a heart attack last year and had to get hospitalized.

Still employed by Cherry Creek, Judith was informed that the company recognized only marriages between a man and a woman.

Judith and Patricia filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that Cherry Creek violates federal laws prohibiting sex-based discrimination, as well as Title VII and the Affordable Care Act.

At present, they are waiting for the verdict. Judith, on the other hand, was fired by Cherry Creek.

I wanted to alert you because this company also offers mortgage loans and is very happy to have LGBT clients.

"Cherry Creek recognizes same-sex marriages when it comes to selling mortgages to same-sex couples, so why won’t they recognize the marriage of one of their employees? They say they believe in family values, but clearly, they value some families more than others," said Judith.
