Two attorneys discussed the Boerne, TX v. Flores, which the Supreme Court heard on February 19. The archbishop of San Antonio, who had requested permission to tear down an old church building and build a new one and was denied by a local ordinance on historic preservation, sued the city of Boerne, TX under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which became law in 1993.
