(Worthy News) – A lawsuit seeking to stop a West Virginia school district from sponsoring in-school religious assemblies was filed Thursday by attorneys representing the Freedom From Religion Foundation and 11 parents and students at the school.
The action, filed in federal district court for West Virginia’s Southern District, accuses the Cabell County Board of Education and Huntington High School of having “repeatedly allowed teachers and outside adults to promote and conduct religious activity for students under its care,” regardless of whether the students want to participate.
Also named as defendants are Superintendent Ryan Saxe and Principal Daniel Gleason. The suit seeks an injunction against the district permitting such events during school hours, “nominal” damages of $1 for each of the 11 plaintiffs, as well as court fees and legal costs.
