Virginia Reply Brief in RLUIPA Case
Virginia has filed its Reply Brief in support of its petition in No.
03-1404, Bass v. Madison, arguing that the Court should grant certiorari not
only on the question of the Establishment Clause challenge to RLUIPA (a
question that both the plaintiff and the U.S. have agreed warrants a grant),
but also on peititioner's alternative grounds for invalidation (absence of
Spending or Commerce authority; alleged Seminole Tribe/Coeur d'Alene Tribe
exception to Ex parte Young). Previous discussions of the case can be found
here and here.
The Court will consider the petition at its June 24th Conference, with
a decision likely on the 28th.
