Supreme Court Rejects Judicial Activism in Solomon Amendment Case

The Supreme Court just did something rare and unusual, it-unanimously-decided to interpret the law rather thank legislate from the bench. In the landmark case of FAIR v. Rumsfeld the Supreme Court told radical left-wing law schools that they must follow the law and if the decided to accept federal funds, they must be willing to let the U.S. Military recruit on campus. These liberal law school administrations wanted to close their doors to these recruiters because of regulations that do not allow an open homosexual to serve in the military.

"It is ridiculous that these extremists want to close their doors to the very people who are bravely put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms here at home, while these law school bureaucrats sit in their ivory towers and ponder how they can force the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby on our families and on our military," said Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio. "It is refreshing to see the Supreme Court decide to follow the law for once and tell these schools that they have the right to their opinions but they don't have the right to our hard-earned tax dollars if they want to throw our soldiers, sailors, and maries off of their campuses."

The 8-0 decision (Alito was not on the court when the case was heard so he did not participate in the vote) upheld the Solomon Amendment, first passed by congress in 1995 and overturned the activist decision of the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.
