Denial of Funds to Yale Law School Upheld

The New York Law Journal reports that the 2nd Circuit
Court of Appeals has ruled that Yale Law School can be
denied federal funding for barring military recruiters from
its campus.

"Plaintiffs ... have no First Amendment claim that is not either
lacking in merit or that has not already been rejected by the
Supreme Court," said 2nd Circuit Judge Rosemary S. Pooler joined
by Reena Raggi in Burt v. Gates, 05-1732-cv.
