About this Case
Parents of public school children sued, alleging the Texas Moment of Silence law violated the Establishment Clause because it mentioned that children could silently pray among other choices. Both the district court and the court of appeals ruled against the parents and upheld the law.

In our brief—filed on behalf of our friends at WallBuilders—we explained that the Moment of Silence law accommodated, but did not establish, religion. We also explained why several of the cases relied upon by the parents in their arguments were inapplicable.
