Christian School in Texas Appeals Decision on Joining Athletic League
Christian school in Texas that was barred from joining the state’s athletic league for public schools has asked a federal appeals court in New Orleans to revive the lawsuit it filed over its exclusion, accusing the league of religious discrimination.
A federal judge last year dismissed the suit that Cornerstone Christian Schools in San Antonio filed against the state’s University Interscholastic League in February 2007. Now, a lawyer for Cornerstone has asked a three-judge panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit to overturn the ruling by U.S. District Judge Fred Biery.
Cornerstone accuses the league of discriminating against parents who choose to send their children to a religious school. The league says it has admitted two of the state’s largest religious private schools but excluded Cornerstone because it was eligible to join another league.—AP
