Alliance Defending Freedom sent Ventura Unified School District a letter Tuesday after it prohibited a booster club from selling products donated by Chick-fil-A because of the restaurant’s “political stance on gay rights.” In 2012, Chick-fil-A President Dan T.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit in a Missouri court this week on behalf of the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City–St. Joseph.
