Attorneys Lindy Urso, Jim Mermigis and Kevin Barry filed a legal challenge in April 2022 to CT's unconstitutional repeal of the religious exemption to attend school. A Preliminary Injunction Motion was filed on June 3, 2022 asking the judge to allow the children of the religious to enroll in school in September 2022.
This case has national importance: it will help protect the religious exemption in the 44 states which still have them, and it could help restore it in the states where it has been repealed.
Connecticut is the first state to repeal the Religious Exemption which also has a state level Religious Freedom Restoration Act law, which requires the highest level of judicial scrutiny.
We are committed to taking this case to the Supreme Court if necessary, which is costly. Regardless of the result of the Preliminary Injunction, we will be going to trial in Connecticut.
Your financial support is much needed and greatly appreciated.
Help us restore the right to religious liberty and the right to education for the children of the religious.
