The State

A federal appeals court has ruled that San Francisco International Airport's attempted eviction of the Christian Science reading room was an act of religious discrimination. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling made last year that barred the eviction and ordered the airport to find equivalent space for the reading room. The airport tried to evict the Christian Science group last March, claiming that separation of church and state barred leasing the city facility to a church.
