Statement of Attorney General Lawrence Wasden Regarding the Pledge of Allegiance Decision
"The holding is just plain wrong and the court's refusal to reconsider the case is offensive to America's people and America's history. The dissent authored by Judge O'Scannlain is on the money in describing the legal flaws in the two-judge majority's decision. I have contacted the National Association of Attorneys General and expressed my commitment to continue leading the states' efforts to reverse this decision. I strongly encourage the parties to appeal this decision to the United States Supreme Court."
