“To date, faith-based organizations have lost more cases than they have won, but their results have been improving.” — Introduction to the Article.
This Article is published by Christianity Today (CT) via its Church Law & Tax division. Mr. Szymanski updates the Article with new cases from around the country as they are decided (21 cases as of 5/20/2020). These cases involve, and are relevant to, Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs) of every kind. Tracking the results can help FBOs and their lawyers win more cases, steward their resources, and create better precedents — which remain influential for decades. CT describes the Article as follows:
“We asked attorney J. Matthew Szymanski, who practices at the same firm as Church Law & Tax advisor-at-large Chip Grange, to track and summarize the outcomes of these cases as they get published. With more than a dozen decisions now covered, and more to come, Szymanski’s report shows one notable trend: churches are losing the challenges more often than not. Learn more details about these cases in Szymanski’s article tracking the outcomes, which we’ll keep updating as his latest summaries become available.”
