California Science Center vs. The Creationist Lobby
(Click to enlarge.)Here’s an update to a story we covered last December, in which the creationist “think tank” called the Discovery Institute used a right wing front group to sneak a creationist film into the schedule of the California Science Center — and then the front group promptly sued when the CSC canceled the film.
Well, now the California Science Center has filed a counter-suit, seeking compensatory and punitive damages for the alleged fraudulent activities of the American Freedom Alliance and the Discovery Institute. The jury trial is scheduled to begin on June 13, 2011. Greg Laden has more details, and the National Center for Science Education has made a lot of the relevant documents available at their website.
