9th Circ: Pledge With "Under God" Bit Is Unconstitutional
The plaintiff, Michael A. Newdow (the same as the last case to reach the SCOTUS), seeks to have the pledge changed back to its original form when said by children in school. The original pledge lacked any reference to God, as above.
But don't forget, "[t]he 9th Circuit is the most overturned appeals court in the country and is considered by legal scholars to be the most liberal" (from 2002 WaPo article about when a 9th Circ judge made a very similar ruling re the pledge).
I'm betting it's overturned, anyone willing to put money on it?
