The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) denied the American Atheists petition for writ of certiorari. This ends the case that was filed in the commonwealth of Kentucky. The decision does not affirm that the decision of the Kentucky Appeals Court is correct, but it results in the law not being overturned. This case was one of about 350 that were denied without comment.
American Atheists National Legal Director Edwin Kagin has indicated he will file a new case in federal court. He is currently seeking plaintiffs. If you are interested in being a plaintiff in the federal case, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
