Federal Court Dismisses Challenge to Arizona Day of PrayerPosted by The Congressional Prayer Caucus | December 14, 2011
On Monday, December 12, 2011, a federal district court judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) challenging Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s annual Day of Prayer proclamations in 2009 and 2010, and an additional prayer proclamation issued by Gov. Brewer in January 2010. The judge ruled that individuals represented by FFRF did not have standing to bring the lawsuit because they did not suffer any injury from the proclamations. The judge relied on a decision by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in explaining that “hurt feelings differ from legal injury.”
