Update on lawsuit over CPA funding grants to local Acton churches

The lawsuit has just been approved to be heard by the Superior Judicial Court of Massachusetts (SJC) which will make the final decision. It is expected to be argued in September.

Besides the brief filed by the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State (read it here: http://www.actonforum.com/sites/default/files/16P1675-Appellant_Brief.pdf ), there is an amicus brief in support of the lawsuit by the ACLU and the ACLU of Massachusetts. (Read their brief here: http://www.actonforum.com/sites/default/files/FINAL_Caplan_Amicus_Brief.pdf ).
