Court moves forward with atheist family’s suit against Acton schools over ‘God’ in Pledge

The Lowell Sun, March 25, 2013

The Becket Fund For Religious Liberty, which has thrown its support behind the Acton-Boxboro Regional School District, was involved in three previous federal court cases regarding removing “under God” from the Pledge, according to published reports. They were Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow, Calif., 2000 to 2004; Newdow v. Rio Linda Union School District, Calif., 2005 to 2010; and Freedom From Religion Foundation v. Hanover School District, New Hampshire, 2007 to 2011. All of the school districts have kept “under God” intact in the Pledge.
