Nussbaum Speir submits Supreme Court amicus brief in First Amendment school choice case

In Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether Montana violated the First Amendment by excluding religious schools from participation in a public scholarship program. On September 18, 2019, Nussbaum Speir filed an amicus brief in the case on behalf of ACE Scholarships, a Colorado-based nonprofit that raises money from generous donors and awards financial scholarships to students from low-income families to attend the school of their choice. Our brief highlights the success of school-choice programs across the country and argues that Montana violated the First Amendment when it excluded religious schools from its program.
