The Thomas More Law Center, named after the Roman Catholic patron saint[note 1] of lawyers and founded by Domino's pizza tycoon Tom Monaghan, is a conservative Christian legal advocacy organization based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. One of its more prominent cases was its defense of the Dover PA School Board in the Kitzmiller case.

In 2011, the Center sued Barack Hussein Obama in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan over the constitutionality of Obamacare and lost. They appealed the decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which upheld the lower court's ruling.[2] In 2001, the Center sued the San Diego chapter of Planned Parenthood to force it to inform women of a possible link between abortions and breast cancer. Clearly fitting the snowball clause, the case was dismissed, with the center ordered to pay legal fees.
