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.

    Please please take it to the U.S. Supreme Court. With additional media coverage, this could greatly help the atheist movement, even if the ruling is unfavorable. I know they take on no more than 1-2% of cases, but with the four liberals right now, that’s enough to get a writ of certiorari.
