SCOTUS to College Campuses: Allow Military Recruiters or Lose Funds
The latest battle ensued in Law Schools - where they imagined that they should be able to bar the military from campus due to its "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays.
Chief Justice John Roberts:
"Nothing about recruiting suggests that law schools agree with any speech by recruiters, and nothing in the Solomon Amendment restricts what the law schools may say about the military’s policies. We have held that high school students can appreciate the difference between speech a school sponsors and speech the school permits because legally required to do so, pursuant to an equal access policy - Surely students have not lost that ability by the time they get to law school....A military recruiter's mere presence on campus does not violate a law school's right to associate, regardless of how repugnant the law school considers the recruiter's message."
Kudos to the Supreme Court, who voted unanimously to shoot down this nonsense. What's next?
