Panelists discuss the upcoming Supreme Court case, Christian Legal Society v. Martinez. The case raises important questions at the intersection of the freedom of association, antidiscrimination law, and public forums. At issue is whether the First Amendment permits Hastings Law School to deny official recognition to a student chapter of the Christian Legal Society because the chapter limited its membership to Christians who agreed to its moral conduct code (which included a restriction against homosexual conduct). Our panelists include Greg Baylor of the Alliance Defense Fund, Chris Stoll of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and William Marshall, a nationally recognized First Amendment expert at the University of North Carolina School of Law.
