    07.22.14 Professor Nelson Tebbe Plays Role in Historic Order on LGBT Equality
    Professor Nelson Tebbe

    Yesterday, President Obama signed an executive order expanding protections for federal workers and contractors from discrimination based on sexual orientation.

    The historic order follows recent urgent recommendations by Professor Nelson Tebbe and other legal scholars to resist requests for broad religious exemptions. Their "passionate advocacy and the irrefutable rightness of [the] cause" helped lead to yesterday’s action, President Obama said.

    A leading voice in the national conversation about religious exemption, Professor Tebbe has also written pieces for the New York Daily News, Balkinization, and Slate, among other outlets.
