CASE ENTRY

Fox v. Washington

Michigan inmates who seek to abide by dictates of “Christian Identity” religion, which require adherents to remain separate from non-white people while they worship (and at other times), sue prison for (among other things) failing to allow them to worship separately from other religious groups. District court: Which does not violate the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. Sixth Circuit: Reversed. On remand, the prison needs to explain why it can’t accommodate their religious practices.
