U.S. Supreme Court Hears Oral Argument in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue
First Liberty Institute client filed amicus brief in case involving religious discrimination by State of Montana
Washington, DC—Today, the Supreme Court of the United States hear oral argument in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue. The following statement may be attributed to Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO, and Chief Counsel to First Liberty Institute:
Decades of the government discriminating against religious organizations can come to an end with the Supreme Court’s decision in Espinoza v. Montana. State Blaine amendments have empowered states to legally discriminate against religious organizations when they perform the same work secular institutions do. We are very hopeful the Supreme Court will end this religious discrimination once and for all.
