SCOTUS Upholds Solomon Amendment

The Supreme Court upheld the Solomon Amendment, which bars colleges from accepting federal funds if they refuse to allow military recruiters on their campuses. The unanimous (8-0, since Alito had not been confirmed when the case was argued) opinion was the third written by Chief Justice John Roberts. Thirty-six law schools had challenged the law in the case, Rumsfeld v. Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights, 04-1152.

I will post a link to the opinion as soon as it is available online.

EDIT: The opinion is now available, here.
