The Satanic Temple is making good on their threats from earlier this year when they claimed they would take legal action against Netflix for using a statue they created in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Netflix referred a request for comment to Warner Bros, a unit of AT&T Inc T.N .
In a lawsuit filed on Thursday in NY (via Variety), the group alleges that four episodes of the show feature a Baphomet statue which bears a close resemblance to the one created by the temple.
According to the complaint, Netflix, which distributes "Sabrina", and Warner Bros, which produces it, misappropriated the Salem, Massachusetts-based plaintiff's "Baphomet with Children" in ways implying that it "stands for evil".
The suit claims multiple points of originality that break with more common depictions of the deity that directly tie the show's image with that designed by the Temple.
Not only is the Satanic Temple peeved about what it says is its work showing up on the recently launched series from Riverdale EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, but also the context in which it is displayed. They are suing the streaming service over a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina set statue.
In addition to monetary relief, the lawsuit seeks digital removal of the statue from future distributions of the series.
Its main character is a half-witch, half-human teenager portrayed by Kiernan Shipka.
The case is United Federation of Churches LLC v Netflix Inc et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 18-10372.
