Policeman suspended for praying outside abortion clinic wins settlement
The City of Louisville has paid a Kentucky police officer $75,000 to quickly settle his lawsuit over Louisville’s violation of his constitutional and civil rights. Officer Matt Schrenger sued the city’s mayor, police chief, and police department for persecuting him over his off-duty pro-life prayer. The Thomas More Society, with Louisville attorney, Blaine Blood, filed the federal lawsuit in October 2021, against the City of Louisville and the Louisville Metro Police Department.
Thomas More Society Senior Counsel Matt Heffron explained, “The City’s quick offer of $75,000 shows the City knows it committed a significant and inexcusable violation of a loyal officer’s Constitutional rights.”
Officer Schrenger is a 13-year Louisville police veteran and recipient of multiple commendations. While off-duty early on a Saturday morning, he stopped to pray quietly with his father on a public sidewalk in front of a closed abortion clinic. For that, he was immediately suspended for over four months (with pay), stripped of his police powers, and placed under investigation.
