Friday, American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed a petition for rehearing and request for full court review in this case.
On May 22, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit affirmed a lower court decision that the City of Tulsa and two of its senior police officials did not violate the constitutional rights of Captain Paul Fields, a Tulsa Police officer who was summarily punished for objecting to an order mandating attendance at an Islamic proselytizing event held at a local mosque based on his religious beliefs.
Robert Muise, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of the AFLC and lead counsel for Captain Fields in the case, will join us next Tuesday on Faith On Trial on Iowa Catholic Radio. He is also representing Fr. Frank Pavone and Priests For Life in their challenge to the Obama Administration’s HHS Mandate that requires employers to provide contraceptives and abortion inducing drugs to its employees.
Join Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll as they discuss these and other legal issues of interest to people of faith Tuesday at 9 a.m. (CDT) on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM; 88.5 & 94.5 FM and streaming on IowaCatholicRadio.com. The program will be re-broadcast Tuesday evening at 9.
