Fourth Grade Invitation to Easter Egg Hunt Leads to Lawsuit?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/05/10 01:37:02
Prior to Easter, a fourth grade student at Roland H Lewis Elementary School in Temple Terrace, Florida, wanted to pass out invitations to his Easter egg hunt. School officials quickly put an end to the student’s attempt to pass out the fliers stating that it violated school policy.

Litigation staff counsel Matt Sharp from the Alliance Defense Fund has taken up the case and filed the lawsuit against the school for violating the student’s constitutional rights. In referring to the incident, Sharp said,

“To say than an Easter egg hunt invitation offered from one student to another during non-instructional time is somehow not allowed in America is preposterous. ADF has litigated numerous cases similar to this one, and the law is clear: invitations like this are protected by the Constitution.”

Jeremy Tedesco, another attorney with the Alliance Defense Fund pointed out that the school allows students to hand out invitations to things like birthday parties, so the singling out of the Easter egg hunt invitations clearly sets a double standard.
