Political Activists Should Expect Government Scrutiny After Federal Judge Killed, Congresswoman Shot. This horrible crime and tragedy (in which federal judge John Roll was killed and Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords critically injured) will hurt legitimate political activists and community organizations. It is reasonable to expect government authorities to scrutinize activists and organizations for fear of future attacks from people bent on violence and who may have infiltrated legitimate, peaceful organizations as a "cover" for their true intent. People involved in these organizations should consider reviewing their statements and activities and evaluating the company they keep with qualified legal counsel to review their potential exposure to government scrutiny and to handle any government inquiries.

Ground Zero Mosque Challenge. Eric Dixon is actively researching and preparing a legal challenge to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission decision to decline declaring 47 Park Place, New York NY 10007 as a landmark. This property and an adjacent property are intended to be used by a real estate firm, Soho Properties, as a Muslim mosque. Eric Dixon anticipates a challenge on the grounds that New York City's actions implicate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to our Constitution, proscribing any state establishment of a religion. Tentatively, he believes the City government's actions amount to an unlawful government preference towards one religion and place of worship, and constitute disparate treatment under which other religions are non-preferred and effectively suffer government discrimination.
