Linda Stephens, Co-Plaintiff in Town of Greece v. Galloway

Linda Stephens was one of the two plaintiffs in Town of Greece v. Galloway, the 2014 Supreme Court case that legalized religious invocations at government meetings (with a few caveats).

She worked as a librarian for two decades, served as president of the Greater Rochester Chapter of the National Organization for Women, and was vice president of a local chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

We spoke about the worst moment of the oral arguments, how she followed to get updates on her own lawsuit, and why losing the case has ironically worked out in atheists’ favor.


Here’s a link to Dale Carpenter‘s excellent book about the Texas sodomy case, Flagrant Conduct: The Story of Lawrence v. Texas.
