ACLU vows to keep fighting Missouri prayer amendment after lawsuit dismissed

The ACLU sued Missouri’s Department of Corrections on behalf of two inmates after voters approved the amendment in August. It argued the measure’s ballot summary did not explain how the amendment would impact prisoners. A provision in the amendment says the religious rights of inmates are limited to federal law, which provides fewer protections than Missouri law.
