Ind. Decisions - Yet more on: 7th Circuit decides legislative prayer case, dismissing for lack of standing

Updating earlier ILB entries on the 7th Circuit's legislative prayer decision (start here for recent ILB entries) in the case of Hindrichs v. Bosma, Bill Ruthhart of the Indianapolis Star reports this afternoon that the plainitffs' representative, ACLU of Indiana, has filed a motion for rehearing. A quote:

Ken Falk, an attorney for the ACLU of Indiana, said this afternoon that his group filed a petition for rehearing with the 7th Circuit. He said he's unsure how long it would take for the court to decide whether it would reconsider the case.

The court, Falk said, could either dismiss the request or ask the state to file a legal brief arguing why the case should not be reheard and then make a decision.
