Federal appeals court considers Metro’s blocking of religious ads

The question stems from an Archdiocese of Washington campaign during Christmas in 2017. A lower court had previously sided with Metro, but at least one judge on the three-judge appeals panel appears sympathetic to the archdiocese. If the panel sides against Metro, the transit system might have to rewrite its rules. [Washington Post]
