General counsel Philip Brumley talked about the legal struggles of Jehovah’s Witnesses and argued that their efforts have advanced the protection of human and civil rights globally. In 1943, the Supreme Court ruled in a 6-3 decision that public school students could not be forced to salute the American flag after several Jehovah’s Witnesses challenged their expulsion from a West Virginia public school. This program was a session from a day-long event hosted by the Robert H. Jackson Center to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette U.S. Supreme Court case. close
