On July 5, the BJC filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the Supreme Court case Trinity Lutheran Church v. Pauley. The issue presented is whether or not a church should be able to use government funds from a state program that awards a limited number of grants for playground improvements.

In this podcast, BJC General Counsel Holly Hollman and Associate General Counsel Jennifer Hawks break down the BJC’s brief and explain why the Missouri church (or any church) should not implement state funding to improve its property.
