Won U.S. Courts of Appeals

Colorado Christian University v. Weaver

10th Circuit declares unconstitutional state’s determination that Christian university “too religious” for student aid

Beware the Bias Investigators

Summary

The Colorado Commission on Higher Education denied Colorado Christian University's application for state-funded student financial aid, stating that the school was "pervasively sectarian." The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit ruled that Colorado officials violated the Constitution by excluding CCU and its students from the program. Attorneys with ADF, the Christian Legal Society and the law firm of Rothgerber, Johnson & Lyons filed suit in federal court against state officials. .
