SCOTUS watch: Fantasy land, Washington v Washington, and a big win for religious expression in education – HotAir
We didn’t get Dobbs or Bruen today, but we did get a legit headliner decision from the Supreme Court — while shaving another five cases off the backlog. In a closely watched case argued in December, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the state of Maine cannot restrict education reimbursement funds for parents to only “non-sectarian” schools. The case of Carson v Makin involves a peculiar set of facts in which a school district has no secondary schools, but the implications are clear for school vouchers in all contexts.
Hooray. This looks like one of those old anti-Catholic statutes that the WASPy progressives were so fond of. Only took a century or so to get rid of them (if I'm right).
