Econ 404 5/11/2009 Taft vs. Richardson Judge: Chief Justice Berger Court: Supreme Court of the US (Location, Date): March 1971 Plaintiff: Case Summary: Higher education facilities act, says that federal money can be used to build facilities are places of higher education, but that they can’t be used for places of worship, or part of the divinity school/department. The act applies to religious schools as well, as long as it’s not for religious purposes, basically a church-related college can use federal money for some buildings. Case Notes: Crossing boundary of Church and State? Money can be used for secular, non-religious activities. Aid is one time for materials or facilities, inspections are given to buildings to verify proper use. (IE can’t get money and build building and then switch over its use.) Questions: Does the act reflect a secular legislative purpose? Is the primary effect of the act to advance or inhibit religion?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
