Cupertino Case Post-Mortem

The San Jose Mercury News has an op-ed on the Cupertino lawsuit that says all of the same things I’ve been saying about this case: But let’s call the agreement what it was: a total victory by the district over conservative lawyers who drummed up a bogus claim of religious persecution.

The ADF’s highly dishonest press release, titled Declaration of Independence…
