Rebecca Woodring v. Jackson County, Indiana (2020)

FFRF filed this 7th Circuit Court of Appeals brief in support of atheist plaintiff, Rebecca Woodring. This case centered around a Nativity display that was erected annually at the Jackson County, Indiana Courthouse.

FFRF’s brief argued that the principles of Establishment Clause jurisprudence govern Nativity scene displays and that the display was unconstitutional under the Supreme Court’s Lynch and Allegheny cases. Additionally, this display created the message of exclusion and secondary status to anyone who was not Christian.
