  High Court Rejects Evolution Suit Against CalMarch 23, 1998 13:44 A long-standing lawsuit against a UC Berkeley evolution web site by a Roseville woman who takes the Bible literally has been rejected without comment by the U.S. Supreme Court, the court announced today.

One page on Cal's 840-page "Understanding Evolution" web site says Darwinism can be compatible with religion. The four-year-old suit by Jeanne Caldwell said the government-funded web site contradicts her religious belief about the incompatibility of religion and Darwinism and amounts to a state position on religious doctrine that violates the Constitutional separation of church and state.

Lower courts rejected the suit, saying Caldwell was not eligible to sue because the web site did not cause her significant injury. She appealed to the nation's high court in January.
