The students had reported that the principal was preventing them from handing out Bibles at any time, including during the lunch break. The Independence Law Center then filed suit on behalf of the parents of the students, claiming the school’s policy was a violation of constitutionally protected free speech. The students are part of a group called the Christians in Action Club.
