Freedom from Religion Found. v. Hanover Sch. Dist., 09-2473

In plaintiffs' suit seeking a declaration that the federal Pledge statute and the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in New Hampshire's public schools violates various provisions of the U.S. Constitution, the New Hampshire Constitution, and federal and state law, district court's dismissal of all of plaintiffs' federal claims on their merits is affirmed as the New Hampshire School Patriot Act and the voluntary, teacher-led recitation of the Pledge by the state's public school students do not violate the Constitution.
