Video/Podcast Interview: Ayesha Khan on CLS v. Martinez

April 19, 2010

The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument today in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, a case pitting a state university's ability to enforce an anti-discrimination policy against the objections of a student group seeking official recognition. Following a recent ACS event regarding the case, Ayesha N. Khan, legal director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, talked with ACSblog about the case's implications. Khan said part of what is at stake is the ability of universities to allocate the funds in a way they see fit. In this case, the UC Hastings College of Law "has chosen to support only those student groups that welcome all students as members," Khan said.
