Cert. Petition Filed In Challenge To Navy Chaplain Corps Procedures

The Rutherford Institute announced yesterday that it has filed a petition for certiorari (full text) in In re Navy Chaplaincy. In the long-running case, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals denied a preliminary injunction in a challenge to the Navy's procedures for promoting members of the Navy Chaplains Corps.  Petitioners argue that the current procedures favor Catholics and liturgical Protestants over various non-liturgical denominations.
