OA85: More with Andrew Seidel on Trinity Lutheran & the First Amendment

For today’s show, we dive deeper into the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Trinity Lutheran v. Comer with guest lawyer Andrew Seidel from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

First, however, we answer a question from Patron Christopher Arguin regarding cross-examination that was inspired by TTTBE #30.

In the main segment, Andrew and Andrew continue to discuss church-state separation and the First Amendment.

Next, our friend Seth Barrett Tillman provides us with an update on the CREW v. Trump lawsuit regarding emoluments.

Finally, we end with the answer to Thomas Take the Bar Exam Question #31 regarding the Statute of Frauds.  Listen and find out if Thomas’s improbable one-question winning streak will continue — and don’t forget to play along by following our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and/or our Facebook Page and quoting the Tweet or Facebook Post that announces this episode along with your guess and reason(s)!
