Issues: (1) Whether, when applying strict scrutiny under RLUIPA, lower courts may rely upon an admission that an interest is compelling generally, or must they require the government to demonstrate that the interest is compelling as applied to the particular claimant, as the Supreme Court has previously held; and (2) whether, when applying strict scrutiny under RLUIPA, evidence that twenty other jurisdictions permit a particular less restrictive alternative is sufficient to defeat a government’s claim that it used the least restrictive alternative.
