Legal Roundtable: Discussing U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Missouri-based church case, more

Jun 28, 2017

A lot of news coming out of the U.S. Supreme Court this week. First, a ruling that allows parts of President Donald Trump’s travel ban to go forward. And then, a ruling on case involving a Missouri church, Trinity Lutheran in Columbia, that sought a state grant to put a soft surface on its preschool playground that was denied funding.

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the church and could make it easier for religious institutions to seek state money for non-religious needs.

On Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air, our Legal Roundtable convened again to discuss these cases and many other pressing issues of the law, including the removal of the Confederate Memorial in Forest Park, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney, right-to-work and more.

Joining the program:

  • William Freivogel, J.D., professor at the School of Journalism, Southern Illinois University - Carbondale
  • Greg Magarian, J.D., professor of law, Washington University School of Law 
  • Mark Smith, J.D., associate vice chancellor of students,  Washington University
