In "A Higher Power" We Trust: Alcoholics Anonymous as a Condition of Probation and Establishment of Religion
Part I of this comment discusses probation and the substance of AA, as well as touches on the Supreme Court's attempts to define religion. Part II seeks to discern the proper constitutional standard to be applied to AA as a condition of probation from Supreme Court cases. Part III concentrates on the lower courts' application of the elusive Establishment Clause test. Finally, Part IV briefly highlights the shortcomings of the standards currently being applied to AA as a condition of probation and proposes a solution designed to provide a simpler standard for lower courts to apply and clarify a confusing area of the law.
