Supreme Court: University of Wisconsin to pay $500,000 in damages to Catholic group.

The lawsuit began after UW-Madison withheld a portion of the $253,000 reimbursement requested by Badger Catholic, then known as the Roman Catholic Foundation.

In 2010, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the university violated the group’s First Amendment right to free speech.

The UW-Madison System Board of Regents asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review the ruling, arguing that a public university should not be required to provide funds specifically for religious worship activities, but the request was denied.
