Court to hear arguments in challenge to Ten Commandments display
Posted by afp on Nov 25, 2011

The court will consider arguments in the defendants motion to dismiss the case and plaintiffs motion to proceed using pseudonyms.

The ACLU and FFRF argue that the use of pseudonyms protects the plaintiffs from the vitriol of community members who support the School Boards decision to have the display.

The community has already expressed considerable animus toward these plaintiffs, said ACLU of Virginia Legal Director Rebecca Glenberg. If their identities are revealed, there is no doubt they will become the targets of much more direct harassment.
