Supreme Court of the United States

Sherman v. Koch

Last Updated: 6/2/2020

Overview

Summary

The court’s decision reverses a federal district judge’s decision to strike down the law as unconstitutional in an atheist’s 2007 lawsuit against the Township High School District. In October 2009, the Alliance Defending Freedom and allied attorneys filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the 7th Circuit on behalf of the Illinois Family Institute in support of the law, the Silent Reflection and Student Prayer Act.
