Summer 2014

Advertising in Schools

The LAF Board previously approved filing an amicus brief in the case of Little Pencil, LLC v. Lubbock Independent School District (See LAF Docket, Spring 2014, Recent Decisions).  After the Northern District of Texas Lubbock Division held in favor of the school district, upholding its rejection of the JesusTattoo advertisement, Little Pencil appealed to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.  Little Pencil argues that Lubbock ISD violated its First Amendment rights by rejecting its advertisement.  LAF has approved continuing its assistance in this case by filing an amicus brief with the Fifth Circuit.

Little Pencil, LLC v. Lubbock Indep. Sch. Dist., No. 14-10731 (Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals). LAF’s Attorney: S. Anthony Safi, Mounce, Green, Myers, Safi, Paxson & Galatzan, P.C., El Paso.
