Big Brother Versus Little Sisters Hits Home

Publication Date



Last week I had the honor of filing, on behalf of those residents and their families, a "friend of the court" or amicus brief at the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the Little Sisters of the Poor. It was just one of 43 such briefs supporting the Little Sisters, from groups as disparate as the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the National Association of Evangelicals, Orthodox Jewish Rabbis, 20 states, 207 Members of Congress, and the American Islamic Congress. The case will be argued in March, with a decision expected by the end of June.
