11-744 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether a university violates the free speech and free association rights of religious student organizations by denying them access to a speech forum because they require their members and leaders to agree with the groups’ religious beliefs, while at the same time granting access to nonreligious groups that require their members and leaders to agree with the groups’ nonreligious beliefs; and (2) whether a university violates the Free Exercise Clause by expressly targeting religious student groups for exclusion from a student organization speech forum and by burdening their religious practice pursuant to a policy that is neither neutral nor generally applicable.
