Exorcism Protected in Texas

A Texas church is off the hook for an exorcism it performed on a teenager. Members of the Pleasant Glade Assembly in Fort Worth held down Laura Schubert for hours during her exorcism six years ago. The 17-year-old sued and a jury awarded her $300,000. An Appeals Court reduced the fine but now the Texas Supreme Court has thrown the jury verdict out. The justices say the court was unconstitutionally entangled the court in religious. The Austin American-Statesman says Schubert claims she was injured during the encounter, experiencing hallucination and eventually attempting suicide.
