A chapter of the national Christian Legal Society at Southern Illinois University's law school filed a lawsuit Tuesday in federal court, alleging school officials violated the group's constitutional rights by revoking its status. The university said the group -- which requires members to pledge to adhere to Christian beliefs, including a prohibition against homosexuality -- had violated school policy that official student organizations must adhere to nondiscrimination laws.
