More evidence that the Pledge case was a big sham. It turns out that the plaintiff Michael Newdow was never married to the mother of the 8-year-old child, the mother has custody of the child, the mother and child are practicing Christians, and the child does not object to saying the Pledge. So it is hard to see how Newdow even has standing to complain about his daughter saying the Pledge. See Wash. Post, How Appealing,, or InstaPundit.

Newdow previously sued to get "In God We Trust" off the money. He is also trying to get 50% custody of the girl, said,
"I'm trying to overturn the whole family law system, because it's unconstitutional." It is amazing that the 9th Circuit paid any attention to his silly arguments at all.
