    US supreme court ruling allows military to recruit on campuses

    The Los Angeles Times has this report:

    The challengers to the Solomon Amendment said the same logic should work in reverse. They said they had a free-speech right to exclude anti-gay employers, including the Pentagon, because their presence would conflict with their message of tolerance and nondiscrimination.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia agreed and said the Solomon Amendment was unconstitutional because it "compels law schools to propagate the military's message," including its bias against gays.

    The Bush administration appealed that ruling on behalf of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, and the Supreme Court had no trouble reversing the ruling Monday in Rumsfeld vs. FAIR.
