Settlement Will Go Forward Over Sunrise’s Objections

A federal judge rejected Sunrise Children’s Homes bid to block a settlement agreement between the plaintiffs and the state of Kentucky that Sunrise alleges would single out Sunrise for undue scrutiny and place them at a competitive disadvantage with other child care providers.

According to terms of the settlement, the commonwealth of Kentucky must ensure that faith-based groups — such as Sunrise — do not pressure children in their care to participate in religious services and other religious activities. Sunrise denies that children placed in their care by the state have been or are religiously coerced.

The settlement could jeopardize services Sunrise offers to nearly 2,000 children each year.
