About this Case
The Association of Christian Schools International, one of its member schools, and 5 of that school’s students sued the University of California officials who are responsible for determining whether high school courses qualify as “college preparatory” courses. These officials had denied that status to 38 courses by Christian schools. Unfortunately, the district court and the court of appeals ruled against the plaintiffs.
Summary of NLF's Brief
Our brief demonstrated that the officials and the state policy were deliberately targeting the beliefs of the Christian schools and students. Such targeting constitutes viewpoint discrimination and is unconstitutional.
