School forced to remove Jesus picture

United States – A school in Jackson City, Ohio, is facing a massive legal bill after two rights groups took a successful legal action forcing the school to remove a picture of Jesus that had hung in the building for 60 years. Both the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) and the FFRF (Freedom From Religion Federation) argued that, despite it hanging alongside other historical figures, the picture’s display within school property was unconstitutional and asked for a court order for its removal. The judge’s acceptance of the legal argument now means the school must pay damages and legal fees, reported to be in the region of $95,000. The school’s insurance company has already stated it will not cover the legal fees portion of the final bill faced by the school.
