Liberty Institute Submits To Kountze ISD Board Requested Written Statement

Cheerleaders' Attorneys Encourage District to Lift Banner Ban and Follow Own Policy and State Law

KOUNTZE, Texas, Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Liberty Institute submitted a written statement in response to the Kountze ISD Board of Trustees' request for input on "the Matthews v. Kountze ISD case and the use of religious themes on banners ( e.g. 'run-through' banners) at sporting events."

Liberty Institute's written statement encourages the District "to repeal the order prohibiting student groups from displaying signs with messages from a religious viewpoint. Revoking that one directive will bring KISD in line with its own policy and Texas state law, restore the cheerleaders' free speech rights, and protect KISD from further legal action by bringing the District back under the law."

Liberty Institute General Counsel Jeff Mateer signed up to speak on behalf of the cheerleaders at the special board meeting, Feb. 26.

Liberty Institute is a nonprofit legal group dedicated to defending and restoring religious liberty across America — in our schools, for our churches and throughout the public arena. Liberty's vision is to reestablish religious liberty in accordance with the principles of our Founding Fathers. For information, visit www.LibertyInstitute.org.
