By Albert M. Friedenberg

This report examines "Sunday laws" (laws restricting various government, private and commercial activities on Sunday in official observance of the Christian Sabbath) which are in force in various American states as of 1908. Some of the leading judicial decisions construing these statutes are also presented, with a special focus on cases in which Saturday Sabbath observers (including Jews and Seventh Day Sabbatarian Christians) seek exceptions to these restrictions of Sunday activities.
