March 1965 – U.S. v. Seeger,380 U.S. 163 (1965)

AHA filed an amicus curiae brief in the Supreme Court in United States v. Seeger.  The Supreme Court ruled that the exemption from the military draft for conscientious objectors could not be reserved only for those professing conformity with the moral directives of a supreme being, but also for those whose views on war derived from a “sincere and meaningful belief which occupies in the life of its possessor a place parallel to that filled by the God of those” who had routinely gotten the exemption.
