Virginia appeals constitutionality of RLUIPA

The Roanoke paper reports here ("High court petitioned in religious-rights case," 4/8/04) that Attorney General Kilgore's office has decided in the case originally decided by Judge Turk of the W.D. Va. to petition the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the issue of whether a federal statute protecting the religious rights of prisoners is unconstitutional.
