Freedom of Religion

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether defendant’s freedom of religion was not improperly infringed by one time denial of a Ramadan meal or Eid feast?    

Where an inmate challenged the adverse grant of summary judgment on claims arising from the denial of religious texts, the claims were subject to dismissal for failure to exhaust administrative remedies, and the record did not establish that the practice of the inmate’s religion was substantially burdened under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act or the First Amendment by the one time denial of a Ramadan meal or Eid feast meal, so the judgment is affirmed.

Scott v. Gibson, 20-3000, per curiam.  Appealed from the United States District Court, Eastern District of Arkansas.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer was not attorney of record in this case.
