A federal judge ruled in favor of the Lubbock Independent School District on Thursday in its case against Little Pencil, a company that sued the district earlier this year for rejecting its Jesus Tattoo advertisement, which the district equated to proselytizing.
In February, U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings ruled the dispute between LISD and Little Pencil — a limited-liability corporation organized by Lubbock businessman and former Texas Tech system administrator David Miller that was founded to promote Christian beliefs through the media — could be resolved by exchanging motions for summary judgment, according to A-J media archives.
Kerri Kupec of the Arizona-based Alliance Defending Freedom representing Little Pencil said in an email, “We are disappointed with the court’s decision and are evaluating our options for appeal.”
