Chicago charter
school sued for blocking GSA

Lambda Legal filed suit in federal court Tuesday against a charter school in Chicago that the gay rights group says has thrown up roadblocks to stop a gay-straight alliance its students want to form. The suit says that the principal of the Noble Street Charter High School told the students they could meet only "unofficially" and were not allowed to post signs, distribute flyers, or have their meetings announced. Under the Equal Access Act, high schools that receive federal funds cannot discriminate among noncurricular school clubs based on the group's viewpoint. Lambda accuses Noble Street Charter High School of dragging its feet in the hopes that the school year would end, thereby negating efforts to have the GSA officially recognized. The suit seeks equal treatment for the GSA and an immediate court order allowing GSA members to hold an official meeting before the founding students graduate in June. (Sirius OutQ News)
