Boy Scouts of America v. Barnes-Wallace

Last Updated 7/21/2022


Attorneys with ADF and the Thomas More Law Center filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the U.S. Supreme Court after the American Civil Liberties challenged the Boy Scouts of America for maintaining and beautifying parks leased from the city of San Diego. In 2008, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that the ACLU would be permitted to fight the leases, even though the organization's clients had never visited the parks, observed any religious symbols at the parks or been denied any services by the Boy Scouts.
