Editor's Note :

In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year. Beginning last Term, the Court consistently considered petitions at least two times before granting certiorari. To the extent that practice continues -- and there is no affirmative evidence the Court intends to drop it -- so we are again doubtful that certiorari will be granted in any cases today.

DeWeese v. American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio Foundation, Inc.

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-1512 6th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether an organization has standing under Article III to bring an Establishment Clause challenge based on an “injury” allegedly sustained by one of its members; (2) whether petitioner’s purported religious purpose behind a previous courtroom display renders any proffered secular purpose behind a new display a sham; and (3) whether petitioner's jurisprudential commentary was an impermissible endorsement of religion.
