Foht v. Village of Kewaskum

6 Ways to Show Your Appreciation for Your Pastor


Police in the village of Kewaskum, Wis., threatened a Christian man, Michael Foht, with arrest for distributing Christian literature. ADF attorneys filed suit on behalf of Mr. Foht in federal court in 2008, challenging a local ordinance that severely restricted his constitutional rights to free speech and religious freedom. In Oct. 2008, a federal judge ruled that the ordinance was unconstitutional, ensuring Mr. Foht's free speech rights would be respected.
