Case Summary

On February 6, 2014, various religious leaders and scholars from the greater Los Angeles area filed this complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Central District Court of California. The plaintiffs, represented by private and public counsel with ACLU involvement, sued the County Board of Los Angeles under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

On February 6, 2014, various religious leaders and scholars from the greater Los Angeles area filed this complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Central District Court of California. The plaintiffs, represented by private and public counsel with ACLU involvement, sued the County Board of Los Angeles under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. They alleged that the County had violated the United States and California Constitutions by reinstating a cross onto the design of the county seal. The plaintiffs sought an injunction prohibiting the county from using the new seal which was a violation fo the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and a violation of the California Constitution.

In the complaint, the plaintiffs stated that the Los Angeles County Board of supervisors approved the restoration of the cross on the official seal. They argued the cross was unequivocally a religious symbol. In support of their claim, the plaintiffs explained that 10 years prior of the release of the new seal in 2014, the board took the cross off the seal after finding it was a clear endorsement of religious preference. As such the plaintiffs claimed the addition of the cross violated the plaintiff's First and Fourteenth Constitutional rights and was a violation of the plaintiff’s rights protected by the California Constitution.

Between November 2014 and April of 2016, the parties engaged in discovery. Meanwhile, on February 9, 2015, Magistrate Judge McDermott recused himself and the case was reassigned to Magistrate Judge Mumm. Additionally, on March 4, 2015, the plaintiffs notified the court one of the plaintiffs had died and the case should continue without them.

On September 17, 2015, the plaintiffs filed a motion for permanent injunction. On November 3 and November 4, of 2015, both parties filed motions detailing their proposed finding of fact. On November 12, 2015 the court heard arguments regarding the injunction.

On April 6, 2016, Judge Christina Snyder granted the plaintiff’s motion finding the addition of the cross on the LA county seal violated the three-part Lemon Test and that a reasonable observer would find that the cross had the effect of endorsing one religion over another.177 F.Supp.3d 1194.

On May 23, 2016, the court heard arguments on the plaintiff's proposed judgment and permanent injunction. The same day Judge Snyder found in favor of the plaintiffs. Judge Snyder held that the addition of the cross on the seal violated the California and Federal Constitutions. The order also included instructions for the new seal to be removed where possible and replaced with the old seal. Exceptions included published documents that contained the new seal and buildings where the removal would cause structural damage and there was no other way to cover up the cross. The defendants were permanently enjoined from using the seal with the cross in the future. The defendants were permitted to create a new seal in accords with the order given. The defendants were given a period of 145 days to comply with the court order.2016 WL 2977306

This case is closed.
