Going After the Little Guys

Sept. 16
Going After the Little Guys

The U.S. Defense Department is taking another run at law schools that have refused to let military recruiters visit their campuses because of the Pentagon’s stance on gay servicemen and women. But so far, the only institutions the department has singled out for possible loss of federal funds are three independent law schools. One other law school that has barred military recruiters — Yale’s — is shielded from Pentagon retribution by a court’s injunction, while Harvard’s law school, which last fall declared its intention to bar military recruiters, seems to have been left alone so far.

The issue was thrust back into the public eye again Wednesday, when the Pentagon published in the Federal Register a notice that New York Law School had been placed on a list of higher education institutions that are “ineligible for contracts and grants by reason of a determination by the Secretary of Defense that the institution prohibits or in effect prevents military recruiter access to the campus, students on campus or student directory information.

Rumsfeld is just incredible! This administration continues to chip away at one Consitutional principle after another. This time "equal protection" is the target.

Any practicing lawyer should be absolutely enraged by all of this Bush administration malfeasance and misfeasance. It should be required that we all be prersent in Washington, D.C. on September 24, 2005. We, as a profession, should provide a show of legal force upholding our solemn oaths to presrve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

When next Saturday ends, the date to also be remembered will be 9/24.
