This reports states that Wednesday the Second Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Judge Preska’s preliminary injunction against the New York City Department of Education, preventing the City from excluding all groups (and not only Bronx Household of Faith) that engage in religious worship from using public school facilities after hours on equal terms with other groups.  I have not been able to locate the order, so it is not clear to me how the reporter is getting the June end-date.  For previous discussion of this issue, see here, here, and here.

If someone has access to the order, please let me know.

UPDATE: According to this report, the source of the June time-frame is this sentence in the Second Circuit’s order: “We hope and expect that the district court will render its conclusive, final judgment as soon as practicable, and no later than mid-June, so that the dispute can perhaps be concluded by the beginning of the next school term.”
