Norton v. Kootenai County, CV09-58-N-EJL (D. Idaho 9-11-2009) Where claimant originally asked to go to facility that used AA, and never notified his probation officer of his religious objection to going to AA meetings, no First Amendment violation.
In re Garcia, 24 P.3d 1091, 1091 (Wash. Ct. App. 2001) Given the non-religious classes available to Garcia, we conclude that DOC did not coerce him into participating in a religious program.
Freedom from Religion Foundation, Inc. v. McCallum, No. 00-C-617-C (W. D. Wis. 2002) No First Amendment violation, when secular alternative available.
O’Connor v. California, 855 F. Supp. 303, 308 (C.D. Cal. 1994) Finding that the Establishment Clause was not violated because the DUI probationer had several choices of programs, including self-help programs that are not premised on monotheistic deity.
