UPDATE: Indiana home-school group says state intruding

Indianapolis — An attorney representing a suburban Indianapolis homeschool group says a state commission intruded on its religious affairs when it found it discriminated against a girl with a food allergy, but a lawyer for the girl's family says the 11-family group is guilty of discrimination based on disability.

The Indiana Supreme Court heard arguments in the case Monday.

Attorney Patrick Gillen says the Indiana Civil Rights Commission shouldn't have stepped into the dispute because it involved a religious organization.

Attorney Nelson Nettles representing the girl told the justices the case was about disability, not religion.

The Fishers Adolescent Catholic Enrichment Society provided enrichment opportunities for children of its 11 member families.

The girl's family says she is allergic to chicken and the group wouldn't provide an alternative meal at a dinner-dance.
