Attorney General co-leads brief in SCOTUS religious freedom case

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is has announced he is co-leading a coalition of 22 states with Louisiana in an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of a broader right to religious accommodations in the workplace.

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case, Groff v. DeJoy, on April 18. The outcome of the case holds much significance— the possible restoration of fuller protections for employee religious freedom in the workplace under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A 1977 Supreme Court decision, Trans World Airlines v. Hardison, narrowed protections for religious liberty in the workplace.
