Update to Circuit Split Watch (Cert Grant)

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari in Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & School v. EEOC (10-553), a Sixth Circuit case dealing with the ministerial exception and employment-related lawsuits against religious organizations.

Appellate Daily's earlier coverage of the circuit split preceding this cert grant is here. The articles mentioned and linked, including one by Cardozo Law professor Marci Hamilton, discuss Skrzypczak v. Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulsa, a Tenth Circuit case (cert petition still pending; 10-769), Hosanna-Tabor, and other cases.
