ACLU Sued State over use of Bible in Court
- Without any Plaintiffs the Case was Dismissed

In June of 2005, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) urged North Carolina officials to introduce a policy that would allow the use of the Quran and other religious texts in the courtroom - to be used when a witness takes an oath. Assistant Attorney General Grady L. Balentine Jr. indicated other sections of the oath-taking law already accommodates individuals who have "conscientious scruples" against the Bible. The ACLU still filed a lawsuit. The state attorney general's office dismissed the lawsuit because there were noplaintiffs who were denied their "conscientious scruples."
