126_2017_b4-chri-perfect-gif8201_s878x512Metro told a federal appeals court on Friday that a lower court was right to reject an injunction that would have let the D.C. archdiocese advertise a Christmas campaign on city buses.

Metro defended the lower court’s ruling denying the Archdiocese of Washington’s “Find the Perfect Gift” campaign in a 32-page filing entered in response to a new emergency motion for injunction pending appeal currently being considered by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

The archdiocese sued Metro in U.S. District Court in Washington last month after the transit agency refused to let it advertise a website, FindthePerfectGift.org, on Metrobus exteriors.

The archdiocese’s lawyers asked U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson to grant a preliminary injunction forcing Metro to run the ads, but she ruled against them last Monday, prompting the church’s attorneys to file another motion for injunction in federal court on Tuesday.
