Court Rules City Can’t Force Battered Women’s Shelter to Let Men Sleep Next to Women – LifeNews.com

A federal court issued an order Monday ruling that the city of Anchorage cannot enforce a city ordinance to require a faith-based women’s shelter to admit males and let them sleep alongside women who have suffered physical and sexual abuse. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys represent the Downtown Hope Center in Downtown Hope Center v.

Downtown Hope Center v. Municipality of Anchorage I

Description: The city of Anchorage misapplied a city ordinance against a faith-based women’s shelter after it referred an inebriated and injured man to a hospital and paid for his taxi ride there instead of allowing him to share sleeping quarters with abused and homeless women.
