Merced v. Kasson, et al., 577 F.3d 578 (5th Cir. 2009)

(Texas city ordinance prohibiting the keeping of four-legged animals within town borders violates the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act because the ordinance prevents the plaintiff, a Santeria Oba Oriate priest (combination of Catholicism and African Tribal Religion) from performing animal sacrifice ceremonies essential to plaintiff's religious practice without a compelling government interest to ban such practices).
