    Supreme Court Rules Against Law Schools

    (CNSNews.com) - Law schools that accept federal funding must allow military recruiters on campus, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday. The justices unanimously upheld a law called the Solomon Amendment, which requires universities to give military recruiters equal access or risk losing federal funds. Law schools said they had the right to shun military recruiters to protest the government's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy on homosexuals in the military. The American Center for Law and Justice, a conservative civil liberties group, called the ruling an important victory for the military and national security. "At a time when our military is trying to attract the best and the brightest of our young people, it makes no sense to bar recruiters from college campuses -- especially when federal funds are used to support these schools. Students who are considering serving our nation in the military should not be treated like second-class citizens," said Jay Sekulow, the ACLJ's chief counsel. "The unanimous decision by the Supreme Court ensures that the armed forces have an equal opportunity to recruit our nation's best and brightest students without placing military recruiters at a distinct disadvantage."

    You win again, Carpro! The country wins as well by upholding the military's ability to recruit on campus.

    The body of the Supreme Court has improved over the last 6 months and recent decisions show it.
