Can it be true? Have I beat Howard Bashman to the scoop?
Looks like the Eleventh Circuit correctly affirmed Judge Thompson's order in the Alabama Ten Commandments case. You can go download the pdf file here (look for Glassroth v. Moore). More later after I read it.

[MORE LATER: A very good opinion, by Judge Carnes. Probably the first-ever use of the new legal term "invited error with a parking space" (see page 19 of the pdf file). And a strong finish, warning Chief Justice Moore not to play George Wallace games with the Court. Bad news, by the way, for Bill Pryor's nomination: a resounding defeat for the State, with a million-dollar-or-so attorneys' fee award to be paid to the Plaintiffs from the State's funds, all of which Pryor could have avoided by an appropriate exercise of his authority as the State's highest legal officer.]
