Feb 22, 2006 — The Dover Area school board voted Tuesday night to pay $1 million in legal fees to the attorneys that successfully sued the district over its intelligent-design policy.

In addition, each of the 11 plaintiffs will also receive $1 in nominal damages.

Eight of the nine board members voted in favor while Bryan Rehm, who is also a plaintiff, abstained.

The vote somewhat puts an end to one of the district's most contentious chapters, and, as plaintiff Cyndi Sneath said "lets us catch our breath and move on."

After board members voted, Beth Eveland, one of the parents who sued the district, told the board that she and other plaintiffs at the meeting considered it a fair offer.

However, she said they were dismayed that the taxpayers and children were left with the bill and believed the old board members should be held accountable. The smallest amount of accountability is an apology, she said.

"It's the end of the legal drama, but there is no closure," she said.

Heather Geesey, the only remaining member from the previous board, said after the meeting that she took offense to Eveland's remarks.

"I don't think I have anything to apologize for," she said.

In a sense, I don't think the former school board has anything to apologize for, if it was representing the will of the voters. If the majority of voters elect a group of retards, why should the retards have to apologize to said voters when they go on do something retarded?

Your right, but the fact that they were all voted out suggests they were not representing the will of the people very well. I dont think the former board members should have to pay, although ignorance of the law is a crime, ignorance of science isnt, and i believe they were tricked in to adopting this policy. Most of the time though I am against 'elected officials are just acting in the will of the people so the people deserve what they get' arguments, mainly because its the argument used by suicide bombers.

Of course when the officials are violating someone's rights with the approval of the public, that can't be tolerated. But  here the public is having to pay money as a consequence of their representatives having done what they elected them to do. The representatives didn't double-cross the people, they did what the people knew they'd do, so they don't owe those people any apology.

What they maybe should apologize for, though, is acting in a way that voided their insurance policy. I think even though the voters wanted creationists, and got creationists, they might have expected that even creationists would not have been so irresponsible and stupid as to do that.

Steve I sort of agree with you but think about George Bush.  Should ALL Americans be punished because the majority voted for Bush?  Not everyone in Dover was an IDiot but I suppose that's how democracy works sometimes.  You vote in dorks and eventually you eat dork soup.

Anyhow, I want to help the folks in Dover out so I am mailing them a quarter ($.25) to help pay their legal bill.

I wonder how much $$ the TMLC is chipping in?

I don't know if it's different in Dover, but here in Ohio, the level of interest in, and information available about, school board candidates is statistically indistinguishable from zero.

Our (here in Columbus, the state capital, most populous city in the state, home campus of the state university) representative to the state board is the rector of parish of a right-wing splinter sect split off from the Episcopal church over such affronts to traditional values as women clergy. If 1% of voters even knew he was a minister or priest at all, I would be very, very surprised. I'd be very surprised it 1% of voters know it even now, after he's one of the leading champions of the "intelligent design" cause for the past four years.

Of course, in the most recent election in Dover, the electorate finally was aware, having been whacked over the proverbial head by the proverbial clue-by-four. Maybe next election in Ohio will be different, too. But, as the world learned in 2004, elections in Ohio can be pretty nutty; I'm not optimistic.

They should be footing the whole bill.  This never would have gone to trial if Dick Thompson hadn't convinced the school board that it was a good idea.  Dick was looking for a golden ticket to the SCOTUS and thought he found one in Dover.  The TMLC's ability to offer sound legal advice was in conflict with their own agenda.

Given the fact that the pretrial evidence and depositions indicated an overwhelming case against the school board's actions makes you wonder if the TMLC has some uncomfortable ethical questions to answer.  Questions they have so far not been asked.

I still wonder if the Dover board would have a case against the TMLC for giving them such astonishingly bad legal advice.  Obviously the TMLC was shopping the case to various school boards so their agenda was clear.  They wanted to use a school board as a pawn in their own culture war.  Is that ethical?  I mean given the overwhelming evidence against their cause.

And I wonder if the Dover board could sue the former members who lied and did other things to cover their creationist (unconstitutional) tracks?

While Columbus has the largest Ohio population within city limits, Cuyahoga county is comfortably larger, AND surrounded by more populous counties as well.

Meanwhile, I'm wondering just what the timeframe is for paying this $1M. For a jurisdiction of only a few thousand people, that's a chunk of money, maybe $100 for every person (of any age). Dover is (naturally) atypically undereducated and underachieving in comparison to the rest of the state.

I had to read through a bunch of powerpoint, but I think i finally found, last year, that the school district had a budget of about $15 million.

One of the former board members had suggested they do some bake sales to raise the money.

I say why not ask the intelligent designer to chip in.

In her new book, The Devil in Dover: An Insider's Story of Dogma v. Darwin in Small-Town America, Lebo writes of her journey through a familiar town made alien by a handful of school board members willing to, as Lebo puts it, "lie for Jesus." Lebo closely follows the story of how a handful of fundamentalists, pushing to include the teaching of creationism in school biology courses change their tack when the conservative Christian Thomas More Law Center gets involved. School board members suddenly stop talking about Jesus and creationism, denying statements they made to local reporters, and saying instead they were advocating the teaching of the so-called science of intelligent design. The lies were outright enough to make the presiding judge flush with anger, who subsequently cited the school board's "breathtaking inanity," in his decision against them.

I started getting suspicious of the other side, like the Discovery Institute, when I found that they would use really long words that didn't really make much sense to me and when I would say, "I'm not understanding your point," they would use the same long words, only they'd say them faster and louder. They never deviated from the script. I started to get the feeling that they weren't being straight with me. At one point, I know that [senior fellow at the Discovery Institute] Jonathan West said to me, "I don't get it. Other reporters get this. You don't. Why are you so obtuse?"

OR: You actually found TV footage of Buckingham talking about creationism and brought that to the lawyers. Talk about that moment in the courtroom when Buckingham was shown that footage.

LL: Mike Argento, a fellow reporter, referred to it as the "Homer Simpson moment" where Bill Buckingham was shown the tape and Steve Harvey was questioning him. The whole time on the stand, Buckingham said, "I never talked about creationism." And then they showed the tape and Steve just kind of turns to Bill, waiting for a response from him. There was just silence, and everybody in the courtroom was waiting. And he says, "Well see, that was because the newspapers kept saying I was talking about creationism even though I wasn't so when the TV camera was thrust in my face, I was concentrating so hard on not saying creationism that I said creationism when I meant to say intelligent design." That's why Argento called it the "Homer Simpson moment": Don't say creationism, don't say creationism. Doh. To this day Bill Buckingham still maintains that that's what happened. It's just amazing to me that somebody can just deny, deny, deny. Maybe he has even convinced himself at this point. I don't know.

OR: Throughout the book, the plaintiffs, and particularly the lawyers, try to wrap their minds around the lying that goes on. At on point, you write that (plaintiffs' attorney Eric) Rothschild wondered whether it was possible that Alan Bonsell, among others, had convinced himself that what he was telling the truth.

LL: During the whole trial, Alan Bonsell would sit there in the courtroom, wearing this serene smile on his face. He'd spread out his arms and lean back, seeming so assured. Then it's finally his turn to testify. It's pretty obvious at this point that there are some serious issues because Bill Buckingham and others had testified before him and had not been honest. He gets on the stand, and he's chewing gum. He turned to the judge, and said, "What the court needs to understand." I just remember sitting there and thinking, "Oh no, he didn't. He did not just look a federal judge in the eye and lie and blame the reporters."


I think I'm about to pass out from the ecstasy of reading this story.

I was stunned. Judge (John E.) Jones never changed his facial expression, but he did hold (Bonsell's) gaze. When Steve Harvey had finished cross-examining him, it was really obvious that Bonsell had lied in his depositions, and that's when Judge Jones asked to see the depositions and compare it to others. Bonsell seemed like he was the only person in the courtroom who was unaware of the seriousness of what was happening. He continued to rock in his chair back and forth and was still chewing his gum. Everybody else was looking around the courtroom at each other like, what is going on here? I was looking over at the plaintiffs' attorneys, wondering, Is this normal? Does this happen?

Meanwhile, as Judge Jones was reading the documents that showed Bonsell had lied, his face was getting redder and redder. Alan seemed like this blissful gazelle, drinking at the water while the lion is stalking him across the savanna.

Philadelphia Set to Honor Darwin and Evolution

By JON HURDLE
Published: June 23, 2008

PHILADELPHIA — In the long-running culture war between evolution and creationism, Philadelphia is firing the latest shot.

Nine academic, scientific and cultural institutions around the city are holding a Year of Evolution, a series of exhibitions, seminars and lectures to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin next February, and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his seminal work, "The Origin of Species."

Events will include a talk by John E. Jones III, a federal judge who ruled in 2005 that teaching intelligent design — the belief that some aspects of nature are so complex that they must be the work of a higher power rather than of evolution — in public school science classes was unconstitutional.


Big long article at the link.

Not meaning to resurrect a dead thread, but if you have forgotten evolution's Waterloo! ™, at 9 AM EST Feb 10 there will be a radio interview with Judge Jones and Larui Lebo.  What should make this more interesting is that the show is a call-in show and specifically covers York county, which has the Dover School District.

Looks like they have live streaming and archived shows for anyone interested.

Thanks for the tip - it looks interesting, especially in light of the NEW DI efforts to make sure even more school districts lose money.

It seems that Bill Buckingham and Alan Bonsell will get off without perjury charges being pressed. Judge Jones said that he doesn't have knowledge of the prosecutor's office proceedings in the investigation, but given the lapse of time it doesn't seem likely that charges will be issued.

Too bad about the perjury but I'm happy that Judge Jones just pointed out that in science a theory is more than 'just a guess'.  Not the only battle, but one we need to keep fighting.

Yeah, it is too bad that those scum get off free. But, there is still the hope that Karl Rove will do time.

Thanks for the tip in the radio show, I only caught the tail end, but would have missed it entirely.

Seeing it again brought back all the old "Dover Days" memories and a tear (of joy) to my eyes.

Doc just mentioned to me that PBS is rerunning the Dover documentary tonight as well. (I think he said at 8 EST)

"Judgment Day" is available in full lenght on Google Video. Great documentary!
