Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
21-1003 N.Y. App. Div. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2021

Issue: Whether New York’s repeal of the religious exemption to its school vaccination requirement violates the First Amendment’s free exercise clause because (1) either (a) it allows for secular exemptions and, thus, is not generally applicable, or (b) its enactment was motivated by religious bias and, thus, it is not neutral; and (2) whether it is both under- and over-inclusive and, thus, not narrowly tailored to achieve a compelling governmental interest.
