Caldwell Denied, Caldwell Wins

The most recent Establishment Clause lawsuit presented to the Supreme Court, Caldwell v. Caldwell (no relation), was denied a writ of certiorari by the Court today. The suit was filed by Jeanne Caldwell, wife of the infamous Larry Caldwell (who is known for filing frivolous lawsuits against teaching evolution). The defendant was UC Berkeley (coincidentally, the lead defendant is also named Caldwell), which maintains the Understanding Evolution website. The lawsuit was previously dismissed at the District and Circuit Court levels due to lack of standing. This denial of cert officially ends the lawsuit.

    Post something else! It’s April!

    If you’re short of inspiration, take your excellent explanation of Hawai’ian certificates of live birth from Ed Brayton’s blog and post that. It was admirably clear.
