Supreme Court rules that states can force state school campus groups not to discriminate against gays

The United States Supreme Court has today (June 28) upheld a California law that stipulates that groups that get (public) campus funding must accept all people, “that is, not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation or other status or belief”. The plaintiff had been the Christian Legal Society at the University of California at Hastings that would not accept gay or lesbian people.

The case is Hastings Christian Fellowship v. Martinez, with opinion (web url) here.

The Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund has a press release (web url) here.
