The Supreme Court of the United States has refused to hear a Sacramento lawyer's latest challenge against the government's reference to God.

Michael Newdow is the atheist who tried to have the Pledge of Allegiance removed from public schools because it includes the phrase "under God." This time, Newdow was challenging U.S. currency and coins because they include the national motto "in God we trust."
