American Atheists Petitions the US Supreme Court
November 16, 2012 Leave a comment
On November 13, 2012, American Atheists (AA) National Legal Advisor Edwin Kagin submitted a petition for a writ of certiorari to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). This means that he is asking SCOTUS to review the Kentucky Homeland Security lawsuit. AA won at the Circuit Court level, but had the decision reversed by the Ky Court of Appeals. The Ky Supreme Court decided not to review the Court of Appeals’ decision.
Filing the petition does not guarantee SCOTUS will here the case. Only one in one thousand cases are heard. Four justices must agree to hear the case before it will be heard.
