In the 1958 horror movie, "The Blob," a growing reddish blob from outer space devours everyone it touches. Echoing that film, a panel of judges of a federal appeals court ruled that the campus of the University of Alabama, home of the Crimson Tide, devours the speech rights of those on the sidewalks the campus touches. Here at the ACLJ, we have filed an amicus (friend-of-the-court) brief to fight this anti-constitutional blob. First, let's cover some legal background. The First Amendment... read more

Loopholes in President Obama’s signature legislative achievement have defrauded American taxpayers $3.5 Billion dollars in excess ObamaCare credits, and they can’t get it back. Reports indicate that the IRS paid a total of nearly $24 billion in ObamaCare subsidies in 2017. Of that figure, $5.8 billion were actually overages based on the amount of annual income ObamaCare customers reported on their applications. According to the IRS website , ObamaCare customers could elect to have advance... read more

In a divided decision with a number of dissenting judges, a majority of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals (thirteen active judges) affirmed a Maryland federal court’s injunction against the full implementation of President Trump’s National Security Proclamation . The Fourth Circuit stayed the impact of its decision, however, because the Supreme Court previously halted the injunctions against the Proclamation and allowed the Proclamation to go into effect pending the Supreme Court’s final... read more

Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) are local, non-profit organizations dedicated to helping people who are facing difficult decisions concerning a pregnancy. They are often faith-based and would never refer for abortions due to their religious and moral beliefs. In fact, their very reason for existence is the exact opposite – to save lives. The ACLJ is proud to defend CPCs against the increasing hostility that they face from abortion-supportive state and local government officials, many of whom... read more

We’re once again taking on the deep state over both the sham Clinton investigation and the Uranium One scandal. Yesterday, in response to what has become an all-too-familiar pattern and practice of failure by several federal bureaucratic agencies to comply with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requirements and answer the ACLJ’s FOIA requests as the law requires, we filed two new FOIA lawsuits in which we are asking a federal court to order the agencies to issue determinations and produce... read more

Christianity has ignited like a flame across the country of Iran, making the Iranian government so nervous they’re desperate to extinguish it quickly. The people of Iran are converting to Christianity at a record-setting pace. According to a recent story by Mohabat, the Iranian Christian News Agency, there are approximately 360,000 Christians living in the Muslim theocracy today, as compared to just 500 less than 40 years ago. Some reports claim as many as 800,000. It’s difficult to take an... read more

Late last week, as we promised , the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) filed an amicus brief in federal appeals court defending our National Motto – “In God We Trust” – from a self-described Satanist who brought a lawsuit asking the court to order the motto excised from the nation’s currency. As we reported earlier, this is just the latest attempt by Atheists to scrub God from our money and our identity. When we filed an amicus brief in federal court in a similar case, the court agreed... read more
