Finding a Way 29 the one-third pay might be a religious subsidy that violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Requiring a note from a religious leader, he advised, constituted a government inquiry into the sincerity of a religious belief, and clearly violated the First Amendment in several respects.

Cape Ann Waldorf School Cape Ann Waldorf School is an independent school for children in pre-kindergarten programs through the eighth grade. Jonathan Cosco helped the school acquire a new home at Moraine Farm in Beverly, Massachusetts. This 170- acre property is one of the few private estates designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., and has been protected by perpetual conservation restrictions that dictate the kinds and intensity of use that can occur. Those restrictions are enforced by two of the Commonwealth’s most respected land trusts, the Trustees of Reservations and Essex County Greenbelt Association. Jonathan’s work in helping the school purchase a 10-acre parcel at Moraine Farm for its new home included negotiating a series of clarifications to the conservation restrictions and obtaining the required building approvals.

The plaintiff is therefore now able to attend a secular treatment program and, in so doing, to improve his status for parole. The Anti-Defamation League The Anti-Defamation League sought advice on behalf of public school teachers who wanted to take time off from work to observe religious holidays. Because of an unusual number of snow days, the school district had shortened its spring break, unexpectedly transforming two Jewish holidays into school days. The school district then offered Jewish teachers “religious leave” for those days at one-third pay, but only if the leave was endorsed in a note from a religious leader. Summer Associate Michael Lee, under the supervision of Paul Wilson, researched the implications of this policy under the First Amendment and under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Michael concluded that the law permitted the school district to allow extra unpaid “religious leave,” but that Traveling Companions
