Arizona city sued for religious discrimination

Posted: Friday, May 18, 2001

PHOENIX (AP) -- The American Center for Law and Justice has sued the city of Scottsdale, charging that it violated a woman's rights by stopping her from displaying religious material at city-owned community centers.

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Phoenix on behalf of Constance Tuchman, who operates a Scottsdale Bible study group.

Tuchman claims she advertised her Bible group at a city community center for three years before city officials told her to stop because the ad contained the word ''Christian.''

Her attorney said, ''They're not letting her use the facility in the same way as other organizations. We just want to be treated the same way as everyone else.''
