C.H. v. Bridgeton Bd. of Ed.

In C.H. v. Bridgeton Bd. of Ed. (D.N.J. Apr. 22, 2010),[1] a federal district court in Camden, New Jersey held in favor of the constitutional right of a public school student to:

  • "wear a black and red tape armband saying 'Life'"
  • "distribute anti-abortion flyers during non-instructional times"

This was part of the student's participation in the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity (DOSS) in 2009, which is an annual event held worldwide typically on the third Tuesday in October.[2]

This decision agreed with a prior, similar decision in K.D. v. Fillmore Cent. Sch. Dist., 2005 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 33871 (W.D.N.Y. Sept. 2, 2005).
