Cobb County

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which had questioned whether Atlanta attorney Jeff Bramlett purposely misrepresented the timing of events in the Cobb County, Ga. sticker case has ruled that Bramlett did not fudge the facts to strengthen his case, reports the Associated Press.

Bramlett represents parents opposed to stickers placed on biology textbooks that called evolution "a theory, not a fact." U.S. District Court Judge Clarence Cooper ordered the stickers removed last January, saying they represented an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

The Cobb County School District appealed that decision to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. A hearing on that appeal was held last month.

"The attorneys on both sides might have been more careful in their advocacy relating to this issue, which would have assisted the court," the order reads according to AP. "The court, however, does not find that counsel misled it or attempted to do so."
