SFL Joins Supreme Court Amicus Brief

• Students For Liberty
Students For Liberty joined the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) in an amicus brief submitted to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) for the upcoming case Christian Legal Society v. Martinez. The brief argues in favor of the Christian Legal Society’s (CLS) right to freedom of association, which includes the right to limit voting membership to individuals who endorse the organization’s core beliefs. As FIRE’s release summarizes: “the Ninth Circuit’s decision let Hastings demand that all groups accept “all comers” as voting members, which leaves groups with minority viewpoints subject to hostile takeovers by students in the majority.”"
