In the dispute over the dismissal because of an office chair that had been taken, the Archdiocese of Cologne suffered a defeat in court against its legal counsel. The Cologne Labor Court upheld the lawsuit of the woman who had worked under Archbishop Rainer Maria Woelki on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Your resignation was found to be invalid. The diocese had spoken out because the lawyer had taken her office chair with her to the home office at the beginning of the corona pandemic.
