In Masterpiece v. Colorado, Justice Gorsuch argues there is no principled way, on First Amendment grounds, to distinguish refusing to make a cake for a same-sex wedding versus refusing to make a cake with anti-LGBT words and symbols.
I argue that this conclusion is mistaken. https://t.co/TF7zhkuYIo
“[T]he questions about how the Supreme Court will balance LGBT civil rights and religious freedom rights in cases like this remained unanswered.”
@mark_satta with a superb analysis of Justice Gorsuch’s logical fallacy in his Masterpiece concurrence.
My wife just published her first scholarly article, "Paper Courts & Parental Rights: Balancing Access, Agency, and Due Process," in the @HarvardCRCL. I'm proud the world can see her brilliance 🙂
New essay in @HarvardCRCL: Safety, friendship, and dreams should be central to 21st c. racial justice agenda; begins with "empirical poetry" drawing from interview participants' narratives. Eager for feedback... https://t.co/0SuugwCH1U
Thoughtful piece co-authored by Alisha Jarwala, an alum of @relmanlaw. Breaking new ground. Watch out for this new generation of civil rights warriors! https://t.co/11pghTAtJu
This is an excellent piece about an important problem that too few people know about. Well worth the read. https://t.co/QCXdqajl50
Chronic nuisance ordinances evict people for being people of color, survivors, disabled, or some combination of all three. That’s why Alisha and I argue that they violate the Fair Housing Act, the ADA, and the Constitution. You can read it for free here: https://t.co/pNpZlTU1KS
Predictably, nuisance ordinances impact people of color — for example, @NYCLU found they were enforced almost 5x as much in the parts of the city with the most people of color. @just_shelter found that CNOs were enforced 2.5x as often in predominantly black parts of Milwaukee.
