The following remarks were given on November 14, 2014 during a panel of the 2014 Federalist Society National Lawyers Convention. The focus of the discussion revolved around the recent Supreme Court decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby. The discussion included such topics as the impact that Hobby Lobby will have on future interpretations of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the constitutional implications of the decision. The panel also sought to answer questions such as: Do RFRA 's protections apply to publicly held corporations? What import does Hobby Lobby hold for religiously based exemptions outside of the Affordable Care Act context?
