Gina Passarella reports on Pepper Hamilton attorneys Eric Rothschild and Stephen G. Harvey who represented the plaintiffs in the Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School Board intelligent design case in law.com:
"The science is just a facade, a Potemkin village," Rothschild said.
He said the biggest challenge for his team was deconstructing the defense's argument that intelligent design is a science.
"The argument that intelligent design qualifies as science is incredibly weak," Harvey said. "Intelligent design doesn't even qualify as bad science -- it's not science."
"They have manufactured a controversy in the public arena and then insisted that it should be taught," he said.
