Sefelino v. County College of Morris, et al.

Case Number: 2:23-cv-01595 D.N.J.


AFL’s client is a Christian student who frequently speaks about the Bible and his Christian faith. He seeks to inform his classmates of the Bible’s teachings, urging them to repent their sins and put their faith in Jesus. The County College of Morris suspended him for engaging in “hate speech” for sharing his faith.


AFL sued the County College of Morris (CCM) and its Dean of Students, Janique Caffie, for suspending and threatening a Christian student for preaching from the Bible and speaking against homosexuality.


AFL WIN: The judge found that the suspension and removal of our client from campus violated his First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, as alleged in this suit. The County College of Morris shall permit our client to speak or preach in any public area of the College’s campus, including preaching from the Bible. The College also agrees to permit our client to re-enroll without penalty.
