US v. Stimler, 15-4053

Affirming the convictions of three Orthodox Jewish rabbis charged with kidnapping offenses in a scheme to help Orthodox Jewish women obtain divorces from recalcitrant husbands, rejecting many motions, including those to exclude cellphone data on privacy grounds, arguments that the prosecution created a substantial burden on their exercise of religion, and a motion to introduce evidence about their religious belief and Orthodox Jewish law.
