Don’t ask, don’t bar

The week's news at a glance.

Washington, D.C.

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously this week that Congress may cut off federal funds for universities that bar military recruiters from campus. The military excludes openly gay men and lesbians, and a coalition of law schools had argued that being coerced into welcoming recruiters effectively required schools to surrender their free-speech rights by becoming involuntary carriers of an anti-gay message. But Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that the law mandating campus access for military recruiters, “affects what law schools must do,” not what “they may or may not say.” A spokesman for the law schools called it regrettable that “gay and lesbian students who want to serve their country by becoming military attorneys” are unable to do so.
