Private HS can expel lesbian students

Looks like Proposition 8 isn’t the only gay rights issue in California. The state supreme court refused to hear the appeal regarding a private religious high school that expelled two girls who were “suspected” of being lesbians.

The lower court had rejected the argument that private schools are businesses and subject to the same anti-discrimination laws that govern other businesses.

While private schools provide a service in exchange for payment, which seems to define a business transaction, the court says that private schools operate in a netherworld which is subject to no laws. Sounds like Dick Cheney’s neighborhood.
