ACLU: Students file complaints on right to sit during pledge


NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Two students at separate schools have filed complaints with the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana saying they were told they would be punished for sitting during the Pledge of Allegiance, an act protected as free speech.

ACLU Director Marjorie Esman said the organization had received two complaints in 24 hours.

"If it's happening in two parts of the state that we know about, it's probably happening in more than that, and people just haven't reported it to us," she said Thursday.
