Judge Allows Lawsuit Against City of San Antonio Under ‘Save Chick-fil-A Law’ To Move Forward

A lawsuit by a group of conservative activists (SAFA Members) who allege that San Antonio violated a new Texas law because of the City Council’s refusal last year to allow a Chick-fil-A restaurant at San Antonio International Airport can move forward, a judge ruled Thursday.

The city had sought to have the lawsuit thrown out of court, arguing that the law wasn’t in effect when council members voted to strike Chick-fil-A from an airport concessions contract last March.

The “Save Chick-fil-A” law, which bars government agencies from punishing people or companies for affiliating with or donating to religious organizations, took effect Sept. 1.
