The leader of Alumni For a Catholic USD, an organization committed to promoting Catholic identity at the University of San Diego, is featured in The National Catholic Register for being such a strong and unique voice in the battle for religious liberty.
When trial lawyer Charles “Chuck” LiMandri isn’t advocating change at the University of San Diego, he serves as chief counsel of his own public interest firm to defend religious liberty. He was a leader in the fight for Proposition 8, the California law to protect marriage.
The Register reports:
“Chuck LiMandri is bringing something new to the religious-liberty fight,” said Maggie Gallagher, the founder of the National Organization for Marriage. Gallagher got to know LiMandri when he became the counsel for the California group that launched a hard-fought 2007 petition campaign to get Proposition 8 on the state ballot.
“Most of our religious-liberty lawyers are appellate lawyers — which means they don't take on the messy, time-consuming work at the trial level,” Gallagher told the Register.
LiMandri, she said, is also “a genius trial lawyer, with knowledge of a broad array of relevant law from employment discrimination to anti-defamation and anti-stalker law we need to protect our rights going forward.”
