OUTlaw signs on as supporting group for LGBTBar's amicus brief

WNEC OUTlaw is signing on as a supporting group of the LGBTBar's amicus brief standing behind UC Hasting's decision not to fund a student group that openly discriminates against its LGBT students.
In 2004, the Christian Legal Society’s chapter at the University of California-Hastings filed a lawsuit after the school denied a funding request because of the group’s anti-LGBT discrimination policy. The question before the Court now is whether the “Constitution allows a state law school to deny recognition to a religious student organization because the group requires its officers and voting members to agree with its core religious viewpoints.”
