|Lori Windham speaks about the U.S. Supreme Court about the decision in the Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp v. Sebelius cases.|
I’m thrilled by the decision. As a student at ACU, I hoped that one day I might be able to take a case to the Supreme Court. But it’s still hard to believe that it happened. I guess I will have to slow down a bit to let it sink in.I had been predicting all along that Hobby Lobby would win its case, since the law is on our side. But it was still nerve-wracking after the oral argument. For three months, all you can do is wait.
ACU was well-represented in the Hobby Lobby case. Two other alums, April Farris (class of 2006) and Matthew Kacsmaryk (class of 2000), filed friend-of-the-court briefs supporting Hobby Lobby. April is a fellow ACU/Harvard Law alum, and is now with the Texas Solicitor General’s office. Matthew is with Liberty Institute, where he focuses on religious freedom work.
ACU does a great job of preparing students to think about the intersection between faith and the law, and to carry their beliefs into their professional lives.
