LAW: Solomon's Wisdom

The Supreme Court this morning agreed to review the Third Circuit decision (discussed here) that the Solomon Amendment, which provides that universities may not continue to receive federal funding if they refuse to allow military recruiters on campus, violated the First Amendment freedoms of speech and association of university law schools. The case presumably will be heard during the 2005-06 term, so there may not be a decision until next June.

As noted in my prior post and the comments thereto, the case actually raises a number of thorny issues on which the Court's precedents have been wildly inconsistent.

The concept of federal funding arriving with strings attached shouldn't be much of a shocker. If you don't like the strings, don't accept the funds. Next some enterprising Chancellor is going to sue the Feds to force them to fund his institution. what a concept.
