Mizzou Law Students File Amicus Brief in Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces

Hulston Hall

Three third-year Mizzou Law students, Brian McGarry, Angela Kennedy and Kristen Stallion, filed an amicus brief in the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces in support of Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling under the supervision of Professor Erin Hawley.

In this case, Lance Corporal Sterling was ordered to take down three Bible verses from her workspace; when she refused to do so, she was court marshaled and later dismissed from the military. United States v. Sterling involves the important questions of how the religious liberty protections of the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act apply in the military.

Counsel for Lance Corporal Sterling noted that the students’ work was “fantastic.”
