Preliminary Injunction Denied In Challenge To Grants To Churches

Americans United reported Monday that a Massachusetts state trial court has denied a preliminary injunction in Caplan v. Town of Acton, Massachusetts, a suit challenging the town's approval of three Community Preservation grants to restore core facilities and religious imagery of two active local churches. (See prior posting.) Plaintiffs contended that the grants violate the Anti-Aid provision of the Massachusetts constitution.
