Ohio School to Pay Nearly $100K After Jesus Painting Lawsuit

An Ohio school was forced to pay a $95,000 fine for displaying a painting of Jesus in its hallway.

The case against the Jackson City School District was brought by the Ohio Chapter of the ACLU and the group Freedom From Religion, who claimed that the painting was an "egregious violation of the First Amendment."

Rather than spend taxpayer dollars fighting the case, the school agreed to settle with the plaintiffs and remove the portrait.

The painting had been hanging in the school's hallway since 1947 as part of a display honoring famous historical figures.
