Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

The U.S. Supreme Court, on its last day in session, makes a decision in the 2014 Burwell v. Hobby Lobby case and rules that corporations have religious-freedom protections. The decision was vague enough to ensure that corporations have the same rights as all humans, or “natural persons.” If you add these rights to the rights only given to corporations but not individuals, then corporations now have more rights than any individual American.

Justice Ginsburg, joined on this point by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, said the court had for the first time extended religious-freedom protections to “the commercial, profit-making world.”
