COURT BACKS YALE
Catalyst September Issue 1998
- In August, a U.S. District Court judge ruled that Yale University “cannot be considered a state actor” and is therefore not subject to First Amendment guarantees recognizing the free exercise of religion. The league filed an amicus brief in the case arguing that the school’s sexually-correct residency rules violated the religious liberty and freedom of association rights of Orthodox Jewish students. The case will be appealed to the Second Circuit.
