NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James, as part of a coalition of 17 attorneys general from around the nation, today fought to protect New Yorkers from employment discrimination. In an amicus brief supporting the plaintiffs in Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru — now before the U.S. Supreme Court — the coalition argues for maintaining the current “ministerial exception” that balances religious freedom with the need to fight back against discrimination, instead of radically expanding this exception in an effort to strip anti-discrimination protections from hundreds of thousands of Americans.
