Jay Sekulow on Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow

Jay Sekulow and the ACLJ filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court on behalf of nearly 70 members of Congress and more than 260,000 Americans asking the high court to uphold the constitutionality of the Pledge of Allegiance and the phrase "One nation under God." In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court agreed with the argument made by Jay Sekulow and the ACLJ that Newdow did not have legal standing to file the suit. The high Court dismissed the case and removed the decision of the federal appeals court which ruled the Pledge was unconstitutional.
