Doe v. S. Iron R-1 Sch. Dist.
In Doe v. S. Iron R-1 Sch. Dist., 2007 U.S. App. LEXIS 19818 (8th Cir. Aug, 21, 2007), the Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit upheld a preliminary injunction sought by the ACLU to ban the private distribution of Bibles in public school.
- "[W]e agree with the district court and the Seventh Circuit in Berger that distributing Bibles to fifth graders in the classroom raises far graver Establishment Clause concerns than, for example, permitting outside groups to distribute religious flyers on school premises or inviting ministers to give nonsectarian prayers at graduation ceremonies."
