Cert. Filed In Faith-Based "Teen Ranch" Case

SCOTUS blog reports that a petition for certiorari (full text) has been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in Teen Ranch v. Udow, (cert. filed 9/13/2007). In the case, the U.S.6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Michigan's decision to cut off placement of abused, neglected and delinquent children with Teen Ranch, finding its program coerces religious participation by the youths by failing to give them a true private choice to opt out of religious activities.
