CEF Wins Permanent Injunction Against Indiana School District

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – An Indiana federal district court has granted Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) a permanent injunction against an unconstitutional policy that the School District of Pike Township used to discriminate against Good News Clubs. Liberty Counsel represents CEF nationwide. One of the ministries of CEF is after-school Good News Clubs for children K-5.

In violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the District previously required CEF to pay facilities use fees for Good News Club meetings, while waiving the fees for similarly situated, non-religious groups. For nearly two school years, the District ignored CEF’s numerous attempts to resolve the constitutional violations. This deprived Pike Township elementary students of the Good News Club’s program, which CEF offers to all interested students free of charge.

Liberty Counsel filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of CEF. The Court previously granted CEF a preliminary injunction, concluding that the District’s policy was likely to be found unconstitutional, and requiring the District to immediately waive facility fees for CEF in the same manner as for other non-religious clubs.
