On January 25, we argued Coach Joe’s case at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, where we believe we must win for every person that wishes to freely live out their faith. This case has gone on for over 5 years – but now at the Ninth Circuit, we have hope to achieve a final victory for all Americans.
Last year, the Supreme Court issued a rare statement providing us with a pathway to victory. Winning this case is essential not only for Coach Joe, but for all Americans: it could finally restore the Free Exercise Clause, one of the key religious freedom clauses found in the First Amendment. This monumental victory would give Americans more freedom than ever before.
