Hobby Lobby and Free Fazolis!

Come join the Federalist Society for a discussion regarding the Supreme Court’s Landmark decision in Hobby Lobby in 2013.  The event will be next Wednesday the 22nd at 4:15pm in 275.  You don’t have to be a member of the Federalist Society to participate.  Just bring your ideas and opinions and listen to two very smart people review some of the aspects of that case.  Why do you care about Hobby Lobby?  Why do you want to spend your Wednesday afternoon with us?  Because this case held that closely held for profit companies did not have to provide coverage for contraception to their female employees based on their religious belief that life begins at conception.  No matter which side of this issue you are on, we invite and encourage you to come to the discussion.  Professor Marcosson will be providing a counterpoint to Timothy Carney the Washington based political columnist and author.  To top it all off we'll feed you Fazoli's.  Try to RSVP to sahuff01@louisville.edu by next Tuesday the 21st so that I can insure we have plenty of food to feast on.
