Court allows our church-state lawsuit against Texas school board to go forward

Our AHA legal team has scored a victory in Texas, where a Fort Worth federal court has refused to dismiss our church-state case against a local school board. The suit alleges that the Birdville School District’s policy and practice of opening meetings with prayers violates the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. After the AHA team filed the suit, the defendants responded with a motion to dismiss, which we opposed. The judge’s ruling denying the motion means the case will now go forward. Stay tuned.
