  • Good News for Fellow Ministers....

    The challenge to the Minister's Housing Allowance has been defeated.

    DALLAS — The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a lower court’s ruling that the minister’s housing allowance was unconstitutional. In the decision by the Chicago-based appeals court, it determined that the plaintiffs lacked standing to file the suit.

    The appeals court vacated the trial court’s judgment and remanded with instructions to dismiss the case. The plaintiff’s only recourse would be to seek review by the U.S. Supreme Court.

    The appeal was in response to a December 2013 decision by Wisconsin federal judge Barbara Crabb, who had declared the tax-free housing allowance unconstitutional. At the time of her ruling, she stayed the ruling, keeping it from taking effect, until the appeals process could run its course.

    I was watching for this one. I view it as an example of something we could have avoided with due diligence.

      I don't get it. If the finding was they didn't have standing, how could they even try the Supreme Court?

        They would have to validate to SCOTUS somehow that they have standing, or con somebody who could legitimately claim "standing" to be their case.
