KY Supreme Court Denies Discretionary Review

The Kentucky Supreme Court sent a very short letter to Edwin Kagin, notifying him that they have denied a discretionary review. This means that the Kentucky Homeland Security Law stands at this time. One judge dissented and said there should have been a discretionary review. I believe that there had to be three judges request a discretionary review before a review would have occurred.

This does not mean that the Supreme Court has validated the Appeals Court decision, rather, it simply means that they will conduct a review. This does have the effect of leaving the law in place.

We plaintiffs have three courses of action: 1) Refile in federal court; 2) Request a review by the U.S. Supreme Court; 3) do nothing. I will keep you posted of any decisions regarding this case made by the American Atheists attorneys.
