Welcome to Labor of Law, our weekly snapshot of news and trends affecting the L&E community. On the clock this week: the US Supreme Court’s agreed to take up a new dispute over the scope of the “ministerial exception,” and there’s a new ERISA petition. Plus: Fox Rothschild, sued for alleged sexual harassment, fires a lawyer named as a defendant. Scroll down for Who Got the Work, and much more.

I’m Mike Scarcella in Washington. You can reach me at [email protected] and on Twitter @MikeScarcella. We’re taking a short break for the holidays but returning the first week of January. A couple of holiday-themed reads for the road—The Tyranny of Office Secret Santas [The Atlantic] and Guess Who Is Coming to the Office Holiday Party [WSJ]. Thanks for reading, and happy holidays all.
