Judge Dismisses Majority of Claims in Satanic Temple Lawsuit

Nine out of 10 claims the Satanic temple made against the city of Belle Plaine in a lawsuit over a whether one of their monuments could be erected in Veteran's Park have been dismissed.
U.S. Judge Wilhelmina Wright threw out the Temple's claims that the city's actions violated their free speech and exercise of religion.
The remaining claim alleges that the city more or less breached a contract when they rescinded a permit allowing the monument.
The Temple's attorney Matt Kezhaya told the Star Tribune that he plans to determine which of the dismissed claims can be raised again in a refiled complaint.
