Barnette at 75

6ab403bdc2d5f9de3624331c42bd9be9I have mentioned this previously, but FIU Law Review and FIU College of Law will host Barnette at 75: The Past, Present, and Future of the "Fixed Star in Our Constitutional Constellation" next Friday, October 5, at FIU College of Law. We have a great slate of speakers, including our own Paul Horwitz.

The program is open to the public, so please attend if you are in the Miami area.

Parental permission violates the individual right aspect of the first amendment. See, Matter of Bustin, 10 Ed. Dept. Rep. 168 (N.Y. 1971).

For that matter, standing for the pledge can't be anymore required than the pledge itself. Goetz v. Ansell, 477 F.2d 636 (2nd circ 1973).

This looks like a wonderful program. And very timely in light of the Texas AG's position that students need parental permission to refuse to stand for the pledge! https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/sites/default/files/images/admin/2018/Press/47%20Texas's%20Unopposed%20Motion%20to%20Intervene.pdf
