Supreme Court Review Sought In Case of Football Coach Prayer

A petition for certiorari (full text) was filed with the U.S. Supreme Court this week in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, (cert. filed 6/25/2018).  In the case, the 9th Circuit affirmed the district court's denial of a preliminary injunction sought by a Washington-state high school football coach who in a challenge to his school district was suspended for kneeling and praying on the football field 50-yard line immediately after games. (See prior posting.)  Christian News reports on the petition for review.
