ADF continues to fight for elementary student barred from reading Bible at recess

Appeal asks for new trial, reversal of verdict against former 4th-grade student

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Alliance Defense Fund attorneys filed a notice of appeal Tuesday in the ongoing battle for a public school student who was prohibited from reading and discussing the Bible during recess.  ADF is appealing a jury verdict against the student and a court order that denied his request for a new trial.

ADF attorneys filed suit against the Knox County Board of Education in June 2005 on behalf of then-4th-grade student and his parents.  His trial took place in October of last year.

Case Name:  L.W. v. Knox County Board of Education
