Tree of Life Christian Schools v. City of Upper Arlington

February 19, 2019

The court below held that a city did not violate the “equal terms” clause of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) when it rejected its application to expand.

RFI Position: The Sixth Circuit’s interpretation of RLUIPA’s “equal terms” clause is at odds with the statute’s text, structure, and legislative history and eviscerates a key protection for religious minorities.
