Sunrise to appeal ruling that settled 2000 suit over funding of religious institutions

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, July 2, 2014 1:15 PM EDT

Sunrise Children's Services is planning to challenge a ruling from a federal judge this week that settled a 14-year-old lawsuit over public funding of faith-based organizations.

U.S. District Judge Charles Simpson on Monday approved a settlement and dismissed the suit, which was filed in 2000 against Kentucky Baptist Homes, now known as Sunrise.

Sunrise attorney John Sheller says the agency will appeal Simpson's ruling to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Sheller says the Supreme Court ruling this week on the religious rights of corporate organizations like Hobby Lobby could provide guidance in Sunrise's case.

Alex Luchenitser, associate legal director with Americans United for Separation of Church and State, says Sunrise doesn't have "much of a substantive objection" to the settlement approved by the court.
