Cert. Petition Filed In Ten Commandments Case

A petition for certiorari (full text) was filed yesterday with the U.S. Supreme Court in City of Bloomfield v. Felix.  In the case, a 3-judge panel of the 10th Circuit found that a Ten Commandments monument on a city hall lawn violates the Establishment Clause. (See prior posting.) The full 10th Circuit, over the dissent of two judges, denied en banc review.  (See prior posting.)  ADF issued a press release announcing the petition seeking Supreme Court review.
