Commission Approves DC Judge Who Unconstitutionally Infringes on First Amendment Religious Freedoms for Another 15-Year Term
Recent decisions in the Washington D.C. Courts show a dangerous trend of government overreach and encroachment on fundamental religious liberties.
We demand that the courts stay out of religion, and return to protecting constitutional rights, including the freedom of religion.
If we don’t stand up today,
will your faith be next?
Concerned people from around the world submitted letters to the DC Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure, voicing their concern over Judge Laura Cordero’s lack of impartiality and professionalism.
Commission Approves DC Judge Who Unconstitutionally Infringes on First Amendment Religious Freedoms for Another 15-year term.
Our Response: Letter to the President
of the United States
We are grateful, Mr. President, for your valiant efforts to defend the First Amendment in the face of judicial decisions in courts around the country that are collectively eroding individuals’ rights and freedoms. I write to inform you about a travesty of justice recently committed in the District of Columbia Superior Court. Tens of thousands of people, including myself, have suffered religious discrimination at the hands of Judge Laura Cordero of that court... Judge Cordero’s unconstitutional ruling on this case [“Family Fed. for World Peace and Unification vs Hyun Jin Moon, et al” (No. 2011 CA 003721 B)] not only trampled on the First Amendment rights of the defendants, but also on the rights of people of faith worldwide.
Compounding this injustice was the recent decision to award Judge Laura Cordero with a “well qualified” reappointment on April 27, 2020 by the DC Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure (the “Commission”). This decision was rendered in spite of her numerous judicial errors and 5,000 emails to the Commission objecting to her reappointment... Cordero’s reappointment should have been at the discretion of your office, Mr. President. Regrettably, it appears that the Commission is one of the entrenched governmental entities determined to maintain the status-quo of the DC “swamp” by preventing your office from exercising its authority to appoint competent and honest judges.
Attend a rally at the DC Courthouse with others to personally express your right to believe.
We are fighting to protect every person's right to believe from judicial overreach. You can, too.
If we don't act today, the consequences will impact far into the future. Join the fight.
