Professor Leslie Griffin Quoted in The New York Times

Dr. Leslie C. Griffin is a William S. Boyd Professor of Law at UNLV.

On July 11, she was quoted in The New York Times article Among Justices, Considering a Divide Not of Gender or Politics, but of Beliefs. The article is about the Supreme Court's decisions in Greece v. Galloway and Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, "two cases bearing extensively on the separation of church and state."

“How could Catholics say they are now opposed, that they’re a minority religion, when they’re a majority on the court?” said Professor Griffin in the article. “And now they’re reducing the barrier between church and state in a way that’s comfortable with their values.” 

Professor Griffin, who teaches constitutional law, is known for her interdisciplinary work in law and religion.
