On June 7, 2012, a federal appeals court in New Orleans heard argument on Saint Joseph Abbey’s challenge to Louisiana’s restrictions on who can sell a casket.  In July 2011, after a bench trial, a judge struck down Louisiana’s law as unconstitutional, but the state appealed that decision.  Attending the argument were IJ clients Abbot Justin Brown, Deacon Mark Coudrain and a bus full of monks and nuns from the Abbey’s community.  The argument went well and we anticipate receiving a decision by the end of the year.
