Yesterday, U.S. Supreme Court released an important ruling supporting school choice for parents. The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) had filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the case urging the High Court to uphold the school choice program at issue. In its 5-4 decision in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue , the Court declared: A State need not subsidize private education. But once a State decides to do so, it cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they are... read more

In a major step forward in the fight for life, the Oklahoma legislature just passed – and the Governor just signed into law – one of the most aggressive pro-life bills in history to hold abortionists accountable for taking the lives innocent unborn babies. The Oklahoma Senate voted 37 – 9 and the State House voted 76 – 18 in favor of Senate Bill 1728, the Unborn Person Wrongful Death Act, which allows for parents and grandparents to file lawsuits against abortionists who perform fraudulent or... read more

After more than seven months of being wrongfully detained in India, Christian Pastor Bryan Nerren – a U.S. citizen – has finally been allowed to come home to his family in the United States and will be reunited with them tomorrow evening. On Friday, the false charges against Pastor Nerren were dropped, the prosecution was withdrawn, and the judge lifted all travel restrictions and returned his passport. A misunderstanding that should have taken just hours to resolve administratively within... read more

Recently, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) intervened on behalf of a Christian resident of a senior housing complex who was instructed to remove her crosses from her outdoor garden area pursuant to a so-called policy banning all religious décor. Although both crosses are small – each under three feet tall – she and these symbols of her faith became a target for the senior housing management company. The management company claims to have implemented the religious ban to avoid... read more

We recently obtained another victory for a Christian family facing persecution in Pakistan. Our team on the ground – through our international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice’s (ECLJ) office in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid (OLA) – represented Shahbaz Masih, a Christian man who was illegally detained by police because his nephew had a fight with a Muslim classmate. On February 18, 2020, Shahbaz’s 14-year-old nephew, Ehtisham, an 8th grade student, had a fight with... read more

Today marks a victory for the prolife movement in Maryland. A major pro-abortion bill was just pulled from the state Senate by the bill’s sponsor after our legal team filed written testimony and showed up to testify against it. In a last-minute move, the sponsor of Maryland Senate Bill 664, which sought to amend Maryland’s constitution to include a right to “privacy” (often a euphemism in the law for abortion), pulled the bill from the agenda. The day before the hearing, we supplied written... read more

Amidst today’s liberal, abortion on demand climate, it should not be a surprise that many localities have enacted laws specifically in an attempt to protect abortion clinics and silence peaceful pro-life speech – sidewalk counseling for women seeking abortions. It is becoming more and more important that pro-life advocates understand their right to freedom of speech under the First Amendment. Thankfully, the ACLJ was recently successful in securing the rights of our client to engage women on... read more

At the ACLJ, we’re well aware that the Internet is being weaponized to incite hate and violence against people of faith – and in particular, more and more openly and dangerously against Jews. In the United States, Jews make up only about 2% of the population, yet Jews are the victims of hate crimes more than members of any other faith group – in fact, more than all faith groups combined. According to the FBI , about 60% of all attacks in our country targeting people because of their faith are... read more

The ACLJ secured a victory last week on behalf of a federal law enforcement employee whose religious liberty came under attack. We are continually taking action to defend the religious liberty of Americans across the country. We’ve told you how we have successfully defended schoolchildren who have been chastised by school officials for displaying their faith at school, and a teacher who was ordered not to display a nativity scene in her holiday display. We recently took action for a Christian... read more

The ACLJ just scored a key victory in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in our ongoing defense of the interests our ally Israel against harmful antisemitic discrimination and economic terrorism. We filed a critical amicus brief in a case when a lawyer sued the State of Arizona over what he erroneously called suppression of free speech due to his support for anti-Israel organizations and activities such as those by the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement. As we have argued many... read more
