This amicus brief was written to support the EEOC where defendant claimed a First Amendment ministerial exception to the EEOC’s retaliation claims. Issues include whether the First Amendment is a defense to criminal or civil liability for sexual misconduct by employees; and whether the First Amendment stands for “autonomy” from the law. The final opinion is Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and Sch. v. EEOC, 565 U.S. 171 (2012).
