McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky Exactly Two Weeks Before Oral Arguments

Feb 16, 2006

The legal team at Liberty Counsel has been working tirelessly on the Reply Brief in the United States Supreme Court case of McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky.

This new proposed test, which will be submitted in the Reply Brief, will soon be available for review by the public.

Own A Piece of History

We need your help more now than ever as we enter the final stage of preparation for the Ten Commandments case. As a token of our sincere, deep appreciation for your donation of $50 or more, we will send you an official bound copy of our first brief, just as it was submitted to the Supreme Court of the United States. This document is a remarkable defense of the display of the Commandments in public places, and, indeed, an important educational tool and memento of this historic case.

When you send a gift of $200 or more to help us push through the crucial final stages of preparation, we will send you both of our legal briefs -- our initial brief and our rebuttal to the ACLU's brief -- as soon as we print and bind our second brief to the Supreme Court of the United States. We'll even include a copy of the ACLU's brief, so you can read for yourself their intent to hide our religious heritage from public view. You can order the briefs online or by calling us at 800-671-1776. When you order online, just type "brief" or "briefs" in the box labelled "please enter your comments."
