Religious Liberty Law Section conducts annual meeting on November 18

The Religious Liberty Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan will hold its annual meeting on Monday, Nov. 18, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Oakland County Board of Commissioners Auditorium located at 1200 N Telegraph Rd. in Pontiac.

In addition to voting and naming new officers, the meeting will  include a discussion on current religious liberty concerns in Michigan. Constitutional Law scholar, author, and Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Michael Warren will be the guest speaker addressing “When Legal Protections to Religious Freedom and Sexual Freedom Collide.”

Updates will be shared on the R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission case, as well as proposed amendments to the Code of Judicial Conduct Canon 2(F), currently scheduled for a vote before the SBM’s Representative Assembly at its April 2020 meeting. If passed, this Amendment would be recommended to the Supreme Court and would have a far reaching affect on judges if enacted.

The section will also discuss two recent Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship cases where two separate federal judges ruled against universities for discriminating against this organization in violation of the U.S. Constitution and religious liberty laws.
