In addition to voting and naming new officers, the annual meeting will include a discussion on current religious liberty concerns in Michigan. Constitutional Law scholar, author, and Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Michael Warren will be our guest speaker addressing When Legal Protections to Religious Freedom & Sexual Freedom Collide.
Updates will be shared on the R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission case, as well as proposed amendments to the Code of Judicial Conduct Canon 2(F), currently scheduled for a vote before the SBM’s Representative Assembly at its April 2020 meeting. If passed, this Amendment would be recommended to the Supreme Court and would have a far reaching effect on judges if enacted.
We will also discuss two recent Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship cases where two separate Federal Judges ruled against universities for discriminating against this organization in violation of the U.S. Constitution and religious liberty laws. Please come out to hear about these cases, network with other section members, and help set our course for the coming year.
