O’Neal v. Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge

Last Updated 6/2/2020

Summary

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of a Sunday school program for at-risk youth thrown out of its public meeting place by the East Baton Rouge Recreation and Park Commission due to a ban on religious activities. The program operated at a public park for five years but was kicked out due to the ban, even though the commission allowed at least one other religious group to hold an event at the park.
