Van Orden v. Perry (2004)

FFRF filed this Supreme Court amicus on December 13, 2004. At issue in this case was a Ten Commandments monument that was gifted to the state of Texas for display at the capitol.

This brief argued that the Ten Commandments display was a violation of the Establishment Clause because it gave the appearance of the state endorsing religion.

This brief was drafted and filed on FFRF’s behalf by Attorney James A. Friedman.
