See some brief clips of some of the media coverage of Stephen's federal court case in 2004/2005. Williams vs Cupertino Union School District. While Stephen was a public school teacher in Cupertino, CA, the district started to censor our Christian heritage. Despite his commitment to honor policies against proselytizing in school, he was censored by the administration from using primary source documents with Christian references. He was prevented by his principal from teaching a lesson using the Declaration of Independence, William Penn’s “Frame of Government” and Samuel Adam’s “The Rights of the Colonists," because "the district honors separation of church and state in school." With the help of the Alliance Defense Fund, he filed a federal court case in November of 2004. The case gained national media attention with articles appearing in The New York Times, Washington Post, L.A. Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Reuters, Associated Press, and The New Yorker Magazine, among others. Stephen and his lawyers did interviews on the Hannity and Colmes news program (including the “Take Back America” tour), as well as several national radio talk shows. The case was settled out of court in the summer of 2005 and a written policy was put in place that allowed primary source documents with Christian references to be used in Cupertino classrooms.
