In 2006 Dean Chemerinsky wrote in the Washington Post “With little public attention or even notice, the House of Representatives has passed a bill that undermines enforcement of the First Amendment's separation of church and state. The Public Expression of Religion Act - H.R. 2679 - provides that attorneys who successfully challenge government actions as violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment shall not be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees. The bill has only one purpose: to prevent suits challenging unconstitutional government actions advancing religion.”
But that was 2006. Where are we today? For example, another Ten Commandments case is heading to the Court. And this case may let us see how the Roberts court will proceed on carving out more space for religion in the public square. There is no one better able to give us an assessment of this than our speaker.
The event takes placed at Irvine Ranch Water District**, 15600 Sand Canyon Avenue (at Waterworks) in Irvine.
