Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
What does the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals have to say about the use of New York public school facilities for after-hours worship? Would a limitation on such use be an unconstitutional restraint of religion, or an equally unconstitutional support of religion in schools?
Last week, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals looked at the case of Bronx Household v Board of Education for the fourth time. This is an important case and has been before the courts for quite some time now, so we will break down the facts and legal issues of this case over a series of posts.
According to Reuters, the dispute began in 1994. Here are the quick facts:
The public school was deemed to be a "limited public forum." As such, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals held that "a category of speakers or expressive activities may be excluded from a limited public forum" but only based on "reasonable, viewpoint-neutral rules."
So was this a restriction of freedom of religion? The 2nd Circuit Court seemed to say "not quite."
In the next blog post, we'll talk about last week's decision and we'll look at some criticism of the previous decisions in the Bronx v. Board of Education Cases.
