Encinitas Schools Court Ruling: Let the Kids do Yoga!


Dear YES! Families –


This morning Judge Meyer issued his ruling denying the plaintiffs’ request that EUSD “suspend its unconstitutional religiously based physical education program.”  In finding in favor of YES! and the school district, the judge determined that the EUSD yoga program does not endorse or inhibit any religion.  The program is thus in line with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  From both a legal and common sense perspective, the judge got it right.

Again, thank you so very much for your overwhelming support throughout this battle.  If plaintiffs are foolhardy enough to appeal, as I suspect they may be, we will certainly continue the fight.  Today, however, our kids are the winners.

Coast Law Group wishes you and your families a fantastic 4th of July.
