A California history teacher who referred to creationism as "religious, superstitious nonsense" during a high-school lecture violated the First Amendment by displaying hostility to religion, a federal judge has ruled. Although the student who sued had cited more than a dozen statements attributed to teacher James Corbett, the judge found that only one was a violation. Corbett's school district was not held liable in the suit and Corbett is still teaching at the high school.
