U.S. court tosses lawsuit over “In God We Trust”

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A U.S. district court judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit brought by a California atheist against the U.S. government for its use of the phrase “In God We Trust” on its coins and currency.

Judge Frank Damrell of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California held in his opinion that “In God We Trust” is secular in nature and use, and its appearance on coins and currency does not show government coercion on behalf of monotheism.
