Christine Comer Appeals

Christine Comer is appealing the dismissal of her case against the Texas Education Agency.
As you might remember, Comer was forced to resign as the agency’s director of science curriculum back in 2007 because she forwarded an email from the National Center for Science Education (a pro-evolution group) announcing that Barbara Forrest would be speaking in Austin about (and against) attempts to get “intelligent design” into science classes. The TEA says it has a policy that requires staff to be neutral when talking about evolution and creationism.
In 2008, Comer filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the policy, and in April, a federal judge dismissed the case. Now, Comer is asking the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse the decision.
