More legal documents have been released concerning ACLU’s free speech lawsuit launched in April 2015 against County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS).

From April: The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania filed a federal lawsuit today against the County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) over its refusal to allow a local atheist group, the Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) Freethought Society, to advertise on its buses. The lawsuit argues that the transit system violated NEPA Freethought Society’s free speech rights by rejecting its ads because of the group’s views.

Earlier in July 2015, COLTS filed a motion to dismiss the April 2015 lawsuit.

Yesterday — July 27, 2015 — a response to the motion to dismiss has been issued. See the document included below:
