DeGirolami, Movsesian, Gregory and Johnson on Hosanna-Tabor

On October 4, I attended a panel discussion about Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC organized by the Center for Law and Religion, the Center for Labor and Employment Law, and the Catholic Law Students Association.  The case, which was argued the following day in the Supreme Court, presents a challenge to the “ministerial exception” to anti-discrimination laws.  The panelists included three St. John’s professors: Mark Movsesian (Director of the Center for Law and Religion), Mark DeGirolami (Assistant Director of the Center for Law and Religion), and David Gregory (Director of the Center for Labor and Employment Law).  Joining them was a dear friend of St. John’s, Peter J. Johnson, Jr.  Peter is familiar to viewers of Fox News, where he regularly appears as a legal analyst.  He is also the son of legendary trial lawyer Peter James Johnson ’49, the namesake of our Peter James Johnson National Civil Rights Trial Competition.

The discussion, which was stimulating and thought provoking, is described more fully at CLR Forum, the blog of the Center for Law and Religion.
