Law’s Jonathan Entin talks about upcoming Supreme Court case and Justice Amy Coney Barrett

Barrett urged to recuse herself from Supreme Court LGBT case over Christian faith
Washington ExaminerJonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law and adjunct professor of political science, discussed the request made to Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from an upcoming Supreme Court case on free speech and LGBT issues because of her affiliation with a faith organization that has discriminatory policies against same-sex marriage. “I think there is not a strong legal argument for her recusal if the basis for the suggestion is the views of the group that they attribute to her,” Entin said. “Supreme Court justices have views and are connected with a lot of organizations, a lot of groups just in general, and that’s not enough.”
