Iron Thunderhorse v. Pierce

Petition for certiorari denied on January 10, 2010
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
09-1353 5th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2009

Issue: Whether the court of appeals misinterpreted the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, 42 U.S.C. § 2000cc et seq., to require only a minimal showing that a prison grooming rule which concededly imposes a substantial burden on religious exercise is the “least restrictive means of furthering [a] compelling governmental interest.”
