Sugarman Rogers lawyers Kate Cook, Tony Doniger, and Susan Hartnett submitted an amicus brief on behalf of the ACLU in the Caplan v. Acton case where the SJC took a significant step forward for religious liberty. The amicus brief argued that using the public’s money to subsidize an active church jeopardizes religious liberty, risking the promotion of government interference and surveillance, fomenting divisiveness among religions, and creating incentives that compromise religious beliefs. The SJC agreed that awarding taxpayer dollars to an active church requires careful scrutiny.
