June 2018 – A fire captain in Spokane, Washington, has won justice at the Washington Supreme Court. The Spokane Valley Fire Department fired Jonathan Sprague for refusing to stop using work bulletin board systems to announce religious meetings and sharing biblical perspectives on email work newsletters dealing with topics such as substance abuse and children.

“This is a terrific victory for Captain Sprague and an important reminder of First Amendment principles,” said Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute, who filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the case., 1/30/18
