When Precedent No Longer Matters: The Outlook for LGBTQ+ and Privacy Rights (Virtual CLE Program)
The Tom Homann LGBTQ+ Law Association is pleased to present: When Precedent No Longer Matters: The Outlook for LGBTQ+ and Privacy Rights, a virtual CLE program. The program will be held on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
In June, the Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to abortion because the right is not “deeply rooted in the Nation’s history and tradition” and not essential to the scheme of “ordered liberty.” While the majority in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization insisted that other privacy rights are not in jeopardy, one concurrence expressly called for overturning precedent guaranteeing the rights to contraception, same-sex intimacy, and same-sex marriage. Next year, in 303 Creative v. Elenis, the latest religious challenge to anti-discrimination laws, the Court will consider whether religious beliefs allow business owners to refuse service to LGBTQ+ customers. Are LGBTQ+ rights in decline? Join our speakers as they discuss the impact of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision and the outlook for LGBTQ+ rights and privacy rights. This program provides 1.0 MCLE credit.
