Attack on Mercer County West Virginia Bible Curriculum Thrown Out of Court
First Liberty Institute attorneys say school district committed to following the law
PRINCETON, WV—Today, a federal district court dismissed a challenge to the Bible curriculum offered in Mercer County Schools. First Liberty Institute, the law firm where former Family Policy Council President Jeremy Dys now defends clients’ First Amendment rights of religious expression, partnered with a local firm to defend Mercer County’s Bible curriculum.
Mercer County Schools is grateful to have this unfortunate lawsuit dismissed and remains committed to following the law as it provides diverse educational opportunities to its students. The Court rightly rejected the notion that teaching students about the Bible is always unconstitutional.
