A week from Wednesday, the Seventh Circuit will hear oral arguments in Gaylor v. Mnuchin, the case in which the Freedom From Religion Foundation is challenging the constitutionality of the parsonage allowance.[fn1]
In anticipation of the oral arguments, Professor Anthony Kreis and I are hosting a preview of the case this Wednesday, October 17, at noon. It will be in room 105 of the Corboy Law Center, 25 E. Pearson St., Chicago, IL 60611. There will be pizza, soda, and some great discussion. If you’re free for that hour (and, of course, in or near Chicago), I’d love to see you there! RSVP here.
[fn1] If, like me, you’re interested in attending the oral arguments, they will be held in the main courtroom of the Everett McKinley Dirksen United States Courthouse here in Chicago. The arguments begin at 9:30 am, and will last not longer than one hour.
One thought on “Seventh Circuit Preview: Gaylor v. Mnuchin”
I’ve been following this case for awhile now. I believe you were in the courtroom to hear oral arguments, what was your sense of how the arguments went on both sides? Are you planning on doing a blog post on some of what you heard? From what I’ve been able to gather the judges seemed quite sympathetic to the IRS, etc argument.
