Roark v. South Iron R-1 School Dist., No. 08-1847
A permanent injunction enjoining defendant from allowing distribution of Bibles to elementary school children on school property at any time during the school day is affirmed where the defendant's argument that the permanent injunction impermissibly mandates a content-based restriction on speech in the limited public forum is without merit. However, grant of a declaratory judgment is reversed where the incorporation of the permanent injunction is superfluous and the portion granting judgment on complaint is ambiguous, and a declaratory judgment prohibiting implementation of policy is unnecessary.
