Taft partner Robert B. Craig was interviewed by the Cincinnati Business Courier about the recent ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky regarding the Ark Encounter theme park receiving tax credits for its construction. The court ruled in favor of Answers in Genesis, the developer of Ark Encounter, stating that "denying the group’s participation in the program, including its religious beliefs, are a violation of the First Amendment." The court ordered the state to move forward in processing the application for the tax rebate incentives that would become available once the park opens.
