Star attorneys to argue SCt case on Christian group's exclusion of gay students at public law school

Later this spring the Supreme Court will hear Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, which presents the question of whether a public university law school with a non-discrimination policy can refuse to fund a religious student group because the group requires its members to agree with its core religious beliefs, thereby excluding gay and lesbian students. 

The case is already making news because of the high-profile lawyers the parties have hired, reports the Blog of the Legal Times: former federal appellate judge Michael McConnell, for the Christian student group; former Solicitor General Gregory Garre, for the University of California Hastings College of Law; and Paul Smith of Jenner & Block (who argued Lawrence v. Texas) for the law school LGBT student group that has intervened in the case.
