Cooper v. U.S. Postal Serv., No. 07-4825
In an Establishment Clause challenge to religious displays in a contract postal unit operated by a church, summary judgment for plaintiff is vacated where the Establishment Clause requires no more than that the postal counter be free of religious material, and that visual cues distinguish the space operating as a postal facility from the space functioning as purely private property.
