Required Use of Social Security Number Not a Free Exercise Violation

In Earl of the Family Cox v. St. Mary's County Department of Social Services, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74402 (D MD, June 7, 2016), a Maryland federal district court in a brief opinion rejected the argument by a pro se plaintiff that required use of  his Social Security number in the child support program violates his 1st Amendment free exercise rights.
