Attack on Colo. county’s voucher program thwarted

Appeals court says Douglas County program constitutional
because it is ‘neutral toward religion’

DENVER — The Colorado Court of Appeals Thursday upheld the constitutionality of a Douglas County voucher program that pays for students who attend “private school partners” rather than government-run schools.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys and Colorado Springs allied attorney Stuart Lark filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the case on behalf of the Association of Christian Schools International, the Catholic Diocese of Colorado Springs, Shepherd of the Hills Christian School, Southeast Christian School, and Valor Christian High School in opposition to a lawsuit that attacked the voucher program because it allows some private religious schools to participate.
