The Thomas More Law Center has filed a motion for an en banc rehearing of the appeals court ruling dismissing their silly lawsuit against the federal government for the AIG bailout because a few of the hundreds of subsidiaries for the company market insurance to Muslims. The Worldnutdaily does their usual job of reprinting the press release without even an attempt to examine the arguments:
A battle against federal taxpayer subsidies for Shariah programs is being escalated to the full 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after a three-judge panel of the court decided that a U.S. Marine had no right to challenge the government’s financial support for Islamic law.
No, it isn’t being escalated. They’ve filed a motion, which will almost certainly be denied. Then they’ll “escalate” to filing a cert petition with the Supreme Court, which will also almost certainly be denied. Then they’ll whine about it. And maybe pray about it. And nothing much else will happen.
