Jay Sekulow Argues Board of Airport Commissioners v. Jews for Jesus

Jay Sekulow won a unanimous victory for religious free speech rights. Jews for Jesus, a Messianic Jewish organization of which Jay Sekulow was a member, engaged in a practice of Christian witnessing by passing out religious tracts to passersby at the Los Angeles International Airport. Airport officials then created a policy forbidding all “First Amendment activities.” Jews for Jesus members continued distributing Christian tracts and were arrested. Jay Sekulow approached this case from, what at the time was, a unique angle, arguing for the free speech rights of his clients instead of relying solely on the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, resulting in a unanimous decision in favor of Jews for Jesus from the Supreme Court.
