Solicitor General of the State of Nevada
Trinity Lutheran has been cited as an important victory in the battle to protect religious liberty. Thirty-eight of our states have amendments that “prohibit direct governmental aid to educational institutions that have a religious affiliation.” These so-called “Blaine” amendments were instituted in the late 19th century, and as demonstrated by the Trinity Lutheran case, their reach and enforceability is unclear. Join us as we host Nevada Solicitor General Lawrence VanDyke to discuss the Trinity Lutheran case (in which the State of Nevada filed amicus briefs), Blaine Amendments, his efforts in Nevada’s school choice litigation (which involved a Blaine Amendment challenge), and why Blaine amendments may be problematic for reasons that were never squarely addressed in the Trinity Lutheran decision.
