Cert. Filed In "Christian Flag" Case

Yesterday a petition for certiorari (full text) was filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in Shurtleff v. City of Boston. In the case, the U.S. 1st Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Boston's refusal to allow an organization to raise its "Christian flag" on one of the City Hall Plaza flag poles at an event that would also feature short speeches by local clergy. (See prior posting.) Liberty Counsel issued a press release announcing the filing of the petition.
