Cobb County Case Dropped

The case that was developing in Cobb County, Georgia over a sticker placed in biology textbooks (reminding students that evolution was not a fact and asking students to keep an open mind and critically analyze all information) has now ended.

The sticker in question was originally ruled unconstitutional by a district court, but that ruling was later thrown out by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the case was sent back to the lower court. (See my previous post here). However, the Cobb County School Board recently decided to drop the case. They did maintain, however, that the disclaimers were constitutional.

This means that the district court decision in Selman v. Cobb County Sch. Dist., 390 F. Supp. 2d 1286, which was vacated by the Court of Appeals, shall remain vacated.

Activist Judge Jones cited the Selman district court decision 15 times in deciding Kitzmiller v. Dover. Because Kitzmiller is based in large part upon this now vacated and worthless Selman case, Kitzmiller has become worthless as well.
