June 22 Update on Our David and Goliath Fight to Protect Our Children from Indoctrination

The frustrating news is that on June 13, Collier Circuit Court Judge Shenko denied our emergency injunction.

We have a clear strategy, which will be unveiled as the case plays out. Stay tuned!

Judge Shenko Denies Motion for Temporary Injunction in Collier Textbook Case; Children Endure the Consequences

As many of you are aware, Florida Citizens’ Alliance and three Collier County parents filed suit against the Collier school board on May 31, 2017. On June 6, we [plaintiffs] filed a Motion for Temporary Injunction to halt the Collier School Board from approving on June 13th the six-million-dollar purchase of textbooks reviewed and approved out of the sunshine. The hearing on the injunction was held June 12, 2017 and on June 13, 2017 Collier Circuit Court Judge James R. Shenko denied the request. Help us continue this fight!
