CITY OF SAN ANTONIO SUED OVER CHICK-FIL-A BAN
Local plaintiffs call for Religious Liberty for Restaurant Chain
(San Antonio, Texas) Friday, September 6, 2019 – The City of San Antonio has been sued by five local residents over its decision to ban Chick-fil-A from the San Antonio airport. The lawsuit was filed on Thursday under the new law that Governor Greg Abbott signed, which took effect on September 1, 2019. Under this law, SB 1978, popularly known as the “Save Chick-fil-A” law, citizens may sue a governmental entity that takes “adverse action” against someone based wholly or partly on their donations to a religious organization. The lawsuit accuses San Antonio of discriminating against Chick-fil-A because of its support for Christian organizations such as the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
