United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania

Date December 20, 2005
Case name Tammy Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover Area School District, et al.
Citations 2005 WL 578974 (MD Pa. 2005)
Holding Teaching intelligent design in public school biology classes violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States (and Article I, Section 3 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution) because intelligent design is not science and "cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious, antecedents."
