A few days ago, I was going to mention that the main reason why some cases are settled justly the first time, while others aren’t, has a lot to do with which circuit court the case is heard in. When a lower court decides against a plaintiff, the next step is to appeal the judgement.

No biggie. Just another 9-0 decision that bolsters religious liberty.

No biggie. Just another 9-0 decision that bolsters religious liberty.
