Warrington Parker, a co-counsel for the Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights (FAIR), and Gerald Walpin debated military recruiting on college campuses. They discussed Rumsfeld v. FAIR, a U.S. Supreme Court case on the constitutionality of the 1996 Solomon Amendment, heard in oral arguments later in the day. The amendment is a federal law that requires universities to allow military recruitment on campus or lose federal funds.

Mr. Parker contends that universities should not have to allow military recruitment on campus because of the exclusion of homosexuals from the military. Mr. Walpin, a former JAG attorney with the U.S. Air Force, has filed a brief to the Court on behalf of law students and Medal of Honor recipients that contend that the the merits of the military’s don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy are irrelevant to the broader First Amendment issues at stake in this case. close
