Corbin on Zubik v. Burwell


Friend-of-blog Caroline Mala Corbin (Miami) has a fascinating discussion over at the  American Constitution Society blog that was posted ahead of today's arguments in Zubik v. Burwell.  Her discussion highlights the importance of (and arguments in) the ACS issue brief, which is available in full here.  In her post, Professor Corbin concludes that

"the religiously affiliated nonprofits argue that their religion bars them from providing contraception. The existing contraception regulations ensure that they do not have to. Moreover, the contraception regime easily passes strict scrutiny. Thus, the nonprofits’ RFRA claim fails twice over."

I encourage everyone to take a look at the ACS brief, Professor's Corbin's blog post, and the arguments in this case.  It is a decision that we will all be following closely.
