Last October, a lawsuit was leveled against an evolution web site at UC Berkeley, based on the claim that government funds had been used to promote religious belief. I contributed the section on the history of biological thought. Judy Scotchmoor, the project's coordinator, just dropped me an email letting me know that the judge has dismissed the case. One less frivolous lawsuit clogging the courts. I've got to run, but if I get more information later, I'll update this post. Update: Berkeley press release here.
