Newdow v. U.S. Congress (2003)

This Supreme Court brief was filed on July 25, 2003 in support of Michael Newdow. At issue in this case was the petition to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.

FFRF’s brief argued that having “under God” in the Pledge is unnecessarily divisive and unrepresentative of those who are non-religious. 

This brief was drafted and filed on FFRF’s behalf by Attorney Robert Tiernan.
