U.S. Supreme Court requires Yeshiva University to allow LGBT student club

Conservative Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett dissented. Liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor had temporarily blocked the judge's order last Friday while the justices considered the university's request. read more


  1. From the article, a quote of Katie Rosenfeld who represents students wanting the club:


    "At the end of the day, Yeshiva University students will have a club for peer support this year, and the sky is not going to fall down," Rosenfeld added.


    To me, this means Yeshiva University lost. Sure the school can eventually, years from now perhaps, win in the Supreme Court if necessary. But in the interim the club will operate, likely expand, and become part of the fabric of the school.

  2. Sadly true. YU's big mistake was trying to separate the Y from the U on paper. Had the entire school remained Y then they'd have beaten this.

  3. “U.S. Supreme Court” See 22A184:
    ALITO, J., dissenting
    Court of Appeals may give Yeshiva a second bite at the apple notwithstanding its previous denial. That interpretation is dubious, yet the majority seizes upon it as dispositive. I doubt that Yeshiva’s return to state court will be fruitful, and I see no reason why we should not grant a stay at this time. It is our duty to stand up for the Constitution even when doing so is controversial. For these reasons, I respectfully dissent.”

    Beautiful. I have a second bite in Aranoff v Aranoff both at NYS Court of Appeals and at Appellate Division Second Dept fighting a 30-year hoax = A hoax is a widely publicized falsehood so fashioned as to invite reflexive, unthinking acceptance by the greatest number of persons of the most varied social identities and of the highest possible social pretensions to gull its victims into putting up the highest possible social currency in support of the hoax.
