Suit Challenges Middle School Field Trip To Christian Sports Complex
The American Humanist Association announced yesterday that it had filed a lawsuit against the Joplin, Missouri public school system challenging a middle-school field trip to a Christian sports complex. The complaint (full text) in Doe v.

The suit seeks an injunction and punitive damages.
