April 20 CCJ Town Hall: Religious Liberty and A New Justice

April 20, 2017

In this episode Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, and his guest Joseph Tartakovsky, Nevada Deputy Solicitor General and the Claremont Institute's James Wilson Fellow in Constitutional Law, discuss religious discrimination issues within Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer

This case was argued before the Supreme Court of the United States on April 19th. The issue before the Court involves the Missouri Department of Natural Resources denial of a state grant to resurface a playground at a child-learning center in Missouri solely because a church operates the center. The church argued that its exclusion from a state run program, whose purpose is to assist non-profit organizations with obtaining rubber playground surfaces, is a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause by discriminating against religious institutions. Meanwhile, the state argued that there is no constitutional violation because the church can still run its learning center, and the state constitution forbids government aid to educational institutions that have a religious affiliation.  

Additionally, Dr. Eastman was joined by Professor Anthony T. Caso to take a look at what Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court may mean for our efforts to roll back the administrative state and restore the constitution’s limitations on executive power. Professor Caso is the Director of our Constitutional Jurisprudence Clinic at Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law.

Mar. 31 CCJ Town Hall: Unconstitutional Interference

March 31, 2017

During the Obama administration we watched the government's willingness to enforce its preferences in the lives of citizens increase exponentially in almost every arena. In this podcast  Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, and his guests will take up two cases arguing against this unconstitutional interference: Murr v. Wisconsin, a property rights case; and Gloucester County School Board v. G.G., a transgender bathroom case.

John Groen, lead counsel for the Murr family in Murr v. Wisconsin, and General Counsel and Senior Attorney for the Pacific Legal Foundation joins us in this town hall. The Murrs challenge a legal precedent instituted in Penn Central Transportation Co. v. City of New York (1978), which made it nearly impossible for property owners to win compensation when state regulations take their property. The Center filed a brief supporting the Murrs' argument that regulations that effectively hold private property hostage require just compensation under the Constitution.

On March 6 the Supreme Court vacated and remanded our second case back to the 4th Circuit after President Trump rescinded the guidance that added protections for transgender students to Title IX. Dr. Eastman is joined by Stephanie Taub, Counsel with First Liberty Institute, to discuss Gloucester County School Board v. G.G., and its return to the 4th Circuit. In 2015 a transgender student in Virginia sued the school district for access to the men's bathroom. The 4th Circuit affirmed the lower court's decision granting access, and the School Board appealed to the Supreme Court, asking whether the federal statute's reinterpretation by a low-level bureaucrat was entitled to deference, and whether the Department's reinterpretation of Title IX should be given effect. The Center filed a brief on behalf of the National Organization of Marriage in support of the school board.
