HLS Event: Why Tax-Supported Religious Schools Should Be Rejected in Espinoza v. Montana Department


The American Humanist Association's adjunct organization, the Humanist Legal Society, hosted a lunch event on Monday, January 13, 2020 in the National Press Club's First Amendment Lounge. A panel of three speakers including constitutional law professor Caroline Mala Corbin, Americans United for Separation of Church and State Legal Director Richard Katskee, and Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty General Counsel Holly Hollman was moderated by the Humanist Legal Society Board President David Codell. The panel's focus was a discussion of January 22, 2020 Supreme Court case Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue. The case, challenging the constitutionality of Montana's No Aid Clause, also has major implications on the government funding of private religious schools and the entanglement between state and church it entails.
