Schempp, a Unitarian, was the subject of a 1963 Supreme Court case banning school-sponsored Bible readings in public schools. While a high school student in Abington Township, Pa., in 1956, he and fellow students were required by state law to read 10 Bible verses every day. He protested and was disciplined at school. He and his father, with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, sued the school district.
