I’m thrilled to report that the inaugural Bagels with the Boards CLE was a huge success — every seat was filled and rave reviews continue to pour in, in large part thanks to the generous support of the Land Use & Sustainable Development Law Institute’s Advisory Board, the CLE series sponsor Farrell Fritz PC and cosponsors, and the terrific presentation on RLUIPA Defense by Karla Chaffee, Evan Seeman and Ted Carey.
To stay abreast of RLUIPA, I recommend following the RLUIPA Defense blog here, which includes a post on an upcoming Ninth Circuit case that will consider Hobby Lobby in the context of land use. For an argument about the policy implications of RFRA and RLUIPA, check out:
