About the Event

Presented by: Paul Schmitt

Hosted by: John Peiffer

Offering 1.0 hour of CLE credit

Do religious schools lose their rights to operate according to their faith if they receive public aid? Does tax exemption similarly subject religious institutions to civil rights laws? How much protection does the ministerial exception really provide? Join Brown & Streza attorneys for a discussion on these questions and more as they review recent and ongoing court cases.

The discussion will include analysis of the following cases, and several more, including new opinions that are relevant to religious liberty jurisprudence:

  • Conflicts between longstanding religious beliefs and evolving Civil Rights laws Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish v. Nessel &companion cases
  • Whether tax-exempt status is a public benefit that subjects religious institutions to government control Buettner-Hartsoe v. Baltimore Lutheran High School Association Chen et al. v. Hillsdale College
  • Exploring the Ministerial Exception and Coreligionist exemption Billard v. Diocese of Charlotte McMahon v. World Vision Crisitello v. St. Theresa School (NJ Supreme Court) Archdiocese of Indianapolis cases (Starkey; Fitzgerald; & Payne-Elliot cases)
  • Government hostility to religious institutions Bella Health and Wellness v. Weise
