Forum for Academic and InstitutionalRights (FAIR), the justices will revisit a 2004 decision by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that allowed the schools to restrict, withouttaking a financial hit, the presence of military recruiters on campusbecause the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy violated the schools’policies against discrimination based on sexual orientation.
