Since when did participants in a trial have to take the pledge of allegiance, presumably to the flag?
This is only a New York Law Journal abstract and doesn’t say where this trial was held. In a fifth grade class?
So, along with tearing off the “in god we trust” signs above judges’ heads, I’m going all out for getting rid of the pledge of allegiance–with its gratuitous 1950s insertion of “under god”– anywhere. Including in fifth grade classes.
Motion: Jehovah’s Witness’ Refusal to Recite ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ Biased Jurors
Greg Land, Daily Report
Following a trial in which a jury awarded only $30,750 to a car wreck plaintiff who claimed nearly $250,000 in medical bills, her lawyers are seeking a new trial claiming that jurors were prejudiced against her because she didn’t recite a pretrial Pledge of Allegiance.
