Petition of the day
The petition of the day is:
Louisiana v. Leonard
Issue(s): (1) Whether prisoner free exercise claims should continue to be analyzed under the rationality standard set forth in Turner v. Safley, or, as other courts have recently held, under the neutrality standard set forth in in Employment Division v. Smith; and (2) if prisoner free exercise claims are to be analyzed under the rationality standard set forth in Turner, whether that analysis includes the strict scrutiny requirement fostered in pre-Turner jurisprudence.
