A group of University of Pennsylvania Law School professors and students filed suit Wednesday claiming the Defense Department threatened to cut off federal funding to the university if the law school did not begin treating military recruiters the same as other employers. The suit says the military's insistence on strict enforcement of the Solomon Amendment has forced the law school to abandon its non-discrimination policy toward gays and lesbians.
