The Supreme Court decided last week to not review the case of Joe Kennedy, a Washington state football coach who was fired for praying with his players.
But the game isn’t over yet. We have reason to believe the Supreme Court might revisit the case and rule in Kennedy’s favor.
Kennedy made headlines after he was fired by the Bremerton School District because fans and students could see him take a knee in silent prayer after football games.
So Kennedy’s attorneys with First Liberty Institute and Kirkland & Ellis LLP took action. We asked the Supreme Court to reverse a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that allowed the school district to fire Kennedy.
