I think there was a lawsuit in Corpus Christi, or somewhere in
south Texas, in the early years of See You at the Pole Events. I'll
ask the lawyer who I think I remember handling it -- but not
tonight. He's got an oral argument tomorrow.
Quoting Ed Brayton <stcynic at crystalauto.com>:
> I came across this statement on the ADF's blog about See You At The
> Pole events, which are coming up in a couple days:
> "Considering the decline in the moral values of America´s youth,
> pregnancy, and school violence, SYATP is seen by many as a
> and much needed injection of religion and faith in an increasingly
> dark sector of our society. To others, however, this annual event
> violates the separation of church and state and should be

> But I'm not aware of any lawsuit ever being filed that claims that

> such opposition stated, I'd like to see documentation of it.
