SUPREME COURT DENIES CERTIORARI ON TWO F.A.C.E. CASES

WASHINGTON, DC -- The U. S. Supreme could denied certiorari April 16 in two cases being prosecuted by The Counselor Corps.

In Raney v. Aware Woman, No. 00-1268, certiorari was denied without comment.

In Roe, II v. Aware Woman, No. 00-1301, certiorari was denied before judgement. A decision has been pending before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals since November 3, 2000 oral arguments on the matter as to whether or not Jane Roe, II can proceed anonymously in her case against Aware Woman. Jane Roe, II is the first abortion patient in the history to be denied anonymity in the federal court system. The Supreme Court has said in this decision that Jane Roe, II must continue to wait (it's been over 5 months) on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. See below clip from Jane Roe,II' s Complaint to see what happened to her.

These cases are two of 6 petitions for certiorari made to the U.S. Supreme Court regarding application of the FACE law. The entire history of these and the other 4 petitions, including other court documents, can be accessed at http://www.forerunner.com/cc/court/index.html

The lead attorney in all these cases is Christopher Sapp, Esq. who can be contacted at (321)268-8758
