In L.A. case, Supreme Court rules job discrimination laws don't protect church-school teachers

Copyright © 2020, Los Angeles Times | | | |AdvertisementThe Supreme Court on Wednesday barred teachers who work at church-run schools from filing discrimination lawsuits against their employers, ruling that the Constitution’s protection for religious liberty exempts church schools from state and federal anti-discrimination laws.The justices, by a 7-2 vote, shielded two Catholic elementary schools in Los Angeles County from discrimination claims by two teachers who complained they were unjustly fired, one due to an illness and the other due to age. The court found that since such schools are...

Supreme Court rules religious schools should get state grants given to other private schools

Copyright © 2020, Los Angeles Times | | | |AdvertisementThe Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that states may not exclude religious schools from tuition grants that support other private schools. The justices, by a 5-4 vote, decided that denying grants to students in church schools amounts to unconstitutional discrimination against religion.

Can China be sued in the U.S. and forced to pay for coronavirus losses? Legal experts say no

Copyright © 2020, Los Angeles Times | | | |AdvertisementThough President Trump and other conservatives blame China for the enormous damage inflicted here by the coronavirus, legal experts say the recent efforts to sue Beijing in U.S. courts for the trillions of dollars in losses are almost certain to fail.That’s because of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1976, which stands as a strong barrier to suing a foreign state, including a “political subdivision” or “instrumentality” of a foreign government.
