Judge Denies Catholic Social Services Restraining Order Motion

Philadelphia suspended its foster care contract with Catholic Social Services after they refused to work with a gay couple. 

Catholic Social Services sued for a temporary restraining order to continue its foster care work with Philadelphia arguing religious liberties.

On Friday, Federal Judge Petrese B. Tucker opined that the city had a right to force the agency to adhere to the city’s nondescrimination policies and the motion for temporary restraining order was denied.
