Judge backs church's restraining order on boy with autism

Adam Race, 13, receives a hug from his sister, Chiara, 12, as his brother Joshua, 15, looks on in Eagle Bend, Minn. Adam was banned from a Catholic church in Bertha, Minn., after the family and parish could not agree on accommodations for Adam, who is severely autistic.
A Minnesota judge upheld a restraining order against a 13-year-old boy with autism, saying that the Church of St. Joseph was justified in saying the 6-foot-tall boy's behavior constituted harassment. The boy's mother vowed to continue the legal fight, but said she would again be open to trying mediation. USA TODAY/Associated Press
