      Dear Colleagues,

      A new day, Friday 31 Oct. has been added to the "Dover Pandas"
      trial. That
      means the remaining days are today, tomorrow and 2-4 Nov. I have
      snipped out
      most of this update from Monday, which repeats information on the basic
      facts
      of the trial (who brought the case, who the judge is, etc.)

      best wishes,

      Steve Edinger

      IN COURT MONDAY

      Tuesday, October 25, 2005

      Trial schedule grows

      What? Eleven people whose children attend or plan to attend Dover
      schools sued
      the Dover Area School District ...

      [SNIP]

      ... The lead defense lawyer said he wants to take the case to the U.S.
      Supreme
      Court.

      Quote of the day

      "We'll have to see if it pans out scientifically." - Steve Fuller,
      professor
      of sociology at the University of Warwick in Coventry, England, about
      intelligent design.

      Request dismissed

      The judge granted a plaintiffs' motion to strike an amicus brief filed
      by the
      Discovery Institute in support of the concept of intelligent design.

      In the brief, the pro-intelligent design Discovery Institute urged the
      judge to
      rule that teaching the concept is not unconstitutional.

      The brief asserted that there are several secular reasons for teaching
      intelligent design, such as telling students about theories of
      biological
      origins and improving critical thinking skills.

      But plaintiffs' attorneys argued that the brief was an attempt to get in
      the
      expert testimony of two Discovery fellows, William Dembski and Stephen
      Meyer,
      without subjecting them to cross examination.

      What's next?

      Former Dover Area School Board member Bill Buckingham is expected to
      testify
      Thursday.
