News out of Antioch, California, on The Contra Costa county library's policy of barring religious groups from reserving a public meeting room. A national religious rights groups said in a lawsuit this is unconstitutional. The Alliance Defense Fund filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and library officials. The group brought the suit on behalf of a Christian ministry barred from reserving a public meeting room at the county library's Antioch branch because its policy prohibits the use of the rooms for "religious purposes," the group said.
