Judge Denies Injunction Against CAIR Activity in San Diego Schools

Parents of some San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) students lost their bid to get a federal judge to inhibit it from working with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) filed a motion for preliminary injunction on their behalf in March.

School board officials voted in April 2017 to enter into a formal partnership with CAIR but modified its plan three months later. At their July meeting, the board voted to move away from a formal partnership with CAIR and establish an intercultural committee comprised of people from different religions and communities instead. FCDF called this a “religious gerrymander” built around CAIR.

It claimed that the school district’s anti-bullying/anti-Islamophobia program violated the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution and California state law in its motion. Parents also claimed their children suffered “irreparable harm” from favoritism shown to Muslim students.

Federal Judge Cynthia Bashant ruled Tuesday that they failed to meet the burden of proof for their objection to obtain the injunction. She wrote that the parents had not shown they were subjected to “irreparable harm” from the policy.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
