Oregon Right to Life Argues for Court to Strike Down Law Requiring It to Fund Abortion

Posted by James Bopp, Jr. | Feb 16, 2024 | 0 Comments

Terre Haute - Oregon Right to Life (“ORTL”) has brought a challenge in federal court against Oregon’s mandate that ORTL pay for abortion in its employee healthcare plan. ORTL argues that this requirement (the “Mandate”) should be struck down. In 2017, Oregon adopted a law that required virtually all health insurance plans to cover abortion. Because ORTL does not qualify for this Mandate’s narrow exception, this requires ORTL to purchase such plans for all of its employees. But ORTL opposes abortion on religious grounds. As a result, ORTL filed suit to challenge the Mandate’s constitutionality, because it is well-established that the First Amendment prohibits the government from requiring anyone to violate sincere religious beliefs without a “compelling” reason.

The Irish Rover Asks Court to Award $178,000 in Attorney Fees against Pro- Abortion Notre Dame Professor for her Frivolous Law Suit

Posted by James Bopp, Jr. | Jan 29, 2024 | 0 Comments

South Bend, Indiana - On Friday, The Irish Rover, independent, non-profit, student publication “devoted to preserving the Catholic identity of Notre Dame” asked a court to force Dr. Tamara Kay, a professor at Notre Dame, to pay $178,000 in legal fees for a frivolous defamation suit she brought against The Irish Rover and lost. Earlier this month, the state court in South Bend dismissed Dr. Kay’s defamation suit against The Irish Rover. Indiana law has an “Anti-SLAPP” law which protects someone when exercising their right of free speech against a frivolous suit by dismissing the case. The Anti-SLAPP law also requires the person who filed the meritless suit to pay the attorney’s fees for the defendant. That is exactly what happened to The Irish Rover and is why the court dismissed Dr. Kay’s lawsuit. Now, Dr. Kay will be obligated to pay The Irish Rover’s attorney’s fees.

Baseless Suit Against The Irish Rover Dismissed

Posted by James Bopp, Jr. | Jan 09, 2024 | 0 Comments

South Bend, Indiana - On Monday, a state court dismissed a defamation suit against The Irish Rover, an independent, non-profit, student publication “devoted to preserving the Catholic identity of Notre Dame.” The court found that the defamation lawsuit, which was filed by Dr. Tamara Kay, a professor at Notre Dame and an outspoken abortion rights activist, was meritless. When someone exercises his right to free speech on a matter of public concern and is “slapped” with a frivolous suit, Indiana’s “Anti-SLAPP” law provides a way for the defendant to get the suit dismissed early in the legal process, saving valuable time and resources along the way. That is exactly what happened to The Irish Rover and is why the court dismissed Dr. Kay’s lawsuit.
