Defending Religious Freedom

 Religious Freedom Cases

In October 2012, Erik Sung decided to use two rooms in his home in Lake Forest, Ill. for Maum Meditation. Lake County officials determinded Maum was not a religion denying Sung the right to hold meetings in his home. Sung filed lawsuit in May 2013, and Lake County later reversed their decision calling Maum a religion. However, Lake County imposed expensive renovation requirements under the building code that Sung claims are not required. The case remains pending.
