Just as we’re identifying the three Supreme Court-bound cases that will be impacted by Obama’s new justice pick comes Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, where a religious student group is suing the University of California’s Hastings College of the Law because the school demands all student groups to admit any interested members, even the gay ones. Indeed, it’s headed to Washington on Monday, and may be Justice John Paul Stevens’ last vote on a gay-specific issue. Time for a showdown between the right to discriminate v. the right to discriminate.
