Judge approves Louisiana school religion lawsuit settlement
SHREVEPORT (AP) - A federal judge has approved a settlement in a lawsuit over religious activities at a Louisiana school system.
U.S. District Court Judge Maurice Hicks Jr. on Wednesday approved an agreement reached in January between the Bossier Parish School District and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State.
The group sued the school district in February 2018 after several parents complained their children had been subjected to unwanted religious messages.
Hicks' order calls for the school board to revise part of its religious expression policy.
Both the school district and the group said the decision was a victory.
The group said the ruling will ensure that the religious beliefs of all students are respected. The school district said the agreement preserves a student's right to exercise religious freedom.
