On Saturday, December 15, John Satawa reinstalled his family’s nativity display on the public median between Mound and Chicago Roads in Warren, Michigan. The return of the nativity display – a cherished tradition in the local community for over sixty years – came as the result of a successful legal challenge brought by Robert J. Muise, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC).
The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) has joined forces with former Reagan administration officials to defend the well-known slogan, “Peace through Strength,” which was popularized by the former President as he led America to victory in the Cold War. The slogan is now in the midst of a trademark dispute that has engulfed Washington, D.C. As a result, several former friends and aides of Reagan are fighting – with AFLC’s legal assistance – to preserve the President’s legacy from a “fraudulent misrepresentation.”
On December 11, Robert J. Muise, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), presented oral argument at a hearing in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma on behalf of Captain Paul Fields, a Tulsa police officer who was summarily punished for refusing to attend a mandated Islamic proselytizing event held at a local mosque.
On December 5, Robert Muise, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) presented oral argument in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in defense of Crystal Dixon, a former human resources administrator at the University of Toledo who was fired in 2008 for expressing her personal, Christian viewpoint on homosexuality in an op-ed published in the local newspaper. Dixon is appealing a lower court’s dismissal of her case, which ruled that the University’s “diversity” interests outweighed her First Amendment rights.
