The Federalist Society's Religious Liberties Practice Group, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, and the Cato Institute present a panel discussion on Christian Legal Society v. Martínez. In 2004, the Christian Legal Society filed suit against the University of California Hastings College of the Law after being denied recognition and the benefits of recognition, including student activity fee funding, because the chapter requires its officers and voting members to adhere to the CLS Statement of Faith. In its lawsuit, CLS alleges that UC Hastings' exclusion of its chapter violates, among other constitutional rights, CLS' right of expressive association and CLS' right to be free from viewpoint discrimination. The district court ruled in favor of defendants, and a panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal, in March 2009, affirmed the district court's opinion. On December 7, 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court granted CLS's petition for certiorari, and oral arguments in Christian Legal Society v. Martínez are scheduled for April 19, 2010. Please join our distinguished panel of experts as they discuss the merits of this potentially landmark religious liberties case before the Court. Featuring: Mr. Luke Goodrich, Deputy National Litigation Director for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty; Rev. Barry W. Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State; Dr. Roger Pilon, Vice President for Legal Affairs and Director of the Center for Constitutional Studies at The Cato Institute; Mr. Paul M. Smith, Partner at Jenner & Block LLP; and Mr. William L. Saunders Jr., Senior Counsel for Americans United for Life, as the moderator. Introduction by Mr. Dean Reuter, Director of Practice Groups for the Federalist Society.
