JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorney Daniel P. Dalton will be available for media interviews immediately following the conclusion of each day of a bench trial in a lawsuit filed by a church against the city of Jacksonville Beach. The city twice denied the church a property permit because city officials prefer that the church property be used for some other purpose.

In August, the court denied the city’s motion to dismiss the case. The trial before the U.S. District Court of the Middle District of Florida will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
