Protecting the Judiciary: Thomas Law Offices Obtains Ruling Upholding Judicial Immunity

Published on Jan 4, 2016 at 2:47 am in Recent Cases.

Judges can sometimes be unpopular people.  Such is the nature of their job.  For every judicial decision that they render, one side wins and one side loses.  Even when those decisions are firmly grounded in the law, the losing party can be upset.  While the proper method of disputing those rulings is the appeal process, sometimes litigants bring suit against the judges instead.

Attorney Tad Thomas Represents State of Kentucky in Case Involving Reference to God

Published on Mar 17, 2011 at 6:30 pm in Recent Cases.

Kentucky attorney Tad Thomas represented the state of Kentucky before a three judge panel charged with ruling whether a reference to God violated both the U.S. and Kentucky constitutions.

The case originated from a law that requires the director of the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security to post a plaque that makes a reference to “Almighty God” in the department’s headquarters. In 2009, a circuit judge ruled that the insertion of the phrase violates the U.S. constitution as well as the Kentucky constitution. Those constitutions prohibit the government’s establishment of religion.
