At the Cross Fellowship Baptist Church v. City of Monroe

Last Updated: 6/2/2020

Overview

Summary

The city of Monroe, North Carolina, enacted an unconstitutional zoning code that barred churches from three out of four sub-districts, where churches were previously allowed and libraries, museums, and other nonprofits would continue to be allowed. This prohibited At the Cross Fellowship Baptist Church from holding worship services in its newly rented and renovated premises.
