Donald J. Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project


UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. The case involves the Supreme Court’s review of a lower court ruling about the President’s Executive Order (EO) banning travel from countries posing a national security risk. The lower court, ignoring the plain meaning of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, said the EO violated the Clause because it was not motivated by a secular purpose (as evidenced by rhetoric uttered during the presidential campaign).

April Deboer v. Rick Snyder (Obergefel v. Hodges)


UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. This case is about the protection of a State’s right to define marriage as a union between a man and woman. The Sixth Circuit analyzed the constitutionality of marriage amendments passed by the vast majority of voters in Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee, and decided not to overrule a decision reflecting the beliefs of approximately twenty-two million Americans in those states.
