The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty represented the Jones family and the Knights of Columbus in the case and was also involved in the Massachusetts case. The American Legion was also a party to the New Jersey lawsuit.

Eric Rassbach, deputy general counsel for the Becket Fund, called Bauman’s decision “a win for the Pledge of Allegiance and another loss for these plaintiffs.” He said the pledge suits “invite social division.”
