ACLU sues because woman is “offended” by Christianity

From WorldNetDaily:

Grace C. Osediacz sued the city of Cranston, R.I., asserting that the religious displays -- erected along with secular displays by members of the public in an area designated by the city -- violate the so-called "separation of church and state."

But a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit ruled unanimously Wednesday that Osediacz had no standing to bring her claim. "This is the court's message: You can't sue just because you're an offended observer," said Benjamin Bull, chief counsel of the Alliance Defense Fund, or ADF.

Osediacs was, of course, represented by the ACLU. I wonder if the woman or the ACLU will have to reimburse the city for their expense and time used defending themselves from such an idiotic lawsuit? If they'd won their case, could the rest of us sue the ACLU because they “offend” us?
