Gay-Straight Defiance: FL school forces lawyers to waste time

by Jeremy Hooper

200902111023Eventually we will reach a day when public schools (especially Southern ones) will realize that they can't legally stand in the way of Gay-Straight Alliances. Unfortunately, today is not that day.

This from the AP:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Two Florida high school students on Tuesday sued their school board because they were not allowed to form a club that promotes the tolerance of gays.
...
The lawsuit claims violations of the First Amendment and the Federal Equal Access Act. The act requires schools to grant access and recognition to a Gay-Straight Alliance and other groups if the school allows any extracurricular group to meet on campus, said ACLU attorney Robert F. Rosenwald.

Ugh, it's all so boring. But if schools want to keep dragging their feet, our side will keep going through the motions.

We'll update you once we win this one.
