Federal appeals court rules against NM Christian Youth Group




A federal appeals court has upheld the dismissal of a nationally watched lawsuit in which students from the Church on the Move in Roswell challenged school officials response to their handing out rubber fetuses. The 10th Circuit of Appeals ruled that a federal magistrate judge was correct in ruling that the Roswell Independent School District had the authority to stop the distribution  of the 2 inch rubber fetuses at Goddard and Roswell high schools in 2010. Members of Relentless in Roswell, a youth group with Church on the Move, sued the school district after school officials halted the distribution of the dolls. The dolls contained a bible verse  and contact information on a pregnancy resource center. Attorney’s for the group said the students rights to free speech were violated. I remember covering this story the week it happened live on the air at KKIM.


  1. I hope there will be an appeal to the Supreme Court. Even then there is no guarantee the Supremes will take it up or rule favorably.
