The confirmation hearings for Judge Gonzales have gone very well.  He has done a great job in addressing the questions from the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and his confirmation as the nation's next U.S. Attorney General should occur in the Senate with a comfortable margin.  We look forward to working with Judge Gonzales and his team in the Department of Justice.
 
We are moving aggressively to meet the legal challenges put forward by Michael Newdow who has filed a federal lawsuit in an effort to put a halt to prayer at the Presidential inauguration.  We are filing a brief with the court in support of the constitutionality of the prayer, which is part of our heritage and history in this country.  He has also brought a new legal challenge regarding the Pledge of Allegiance and the phrase "under God."  The inaugural prayer case is time-sensitive with the inauguration set for January 20th.  We will keep you posted as these cases unfold.
 
Also, I want to call your attention to a new area of our website -- Washington Report -- .  As we continue to expand our legislative affairs work at the ACLJ in our Washington office, we will be posting regular reports concerning our work on Capitol Hill to protect your religious and constitutional freedoms.
