A Middlesex Superior Court Judge is expected to issue a written decision on a controversial case involving the Pledge of Allegiance.

Judge Jane Heggarty heard arguments on Monday in the case of an Action family who has filed suit against the Acton-Boxborough School District to take the words “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The Plaintiffs are named as Jane and John Doe out of concern for what they call “public hostility.” Their children are listed as ages 13, 11, and 9.

Superintendent Stephen Mills says the district has spent $10,000 on the case so far, money he says he’d “rather spend on textbooks.” He hopes the judge dismisses the case.
