[September 20, 2019]
A federal judge in Port Huron, Michigan ruled that a Christian student group at Wayne State University can move forward with its religious discrimination lawsuit against the school
The InterVarsity Christian Fellowship sued Waye State University in 2018 after the school derecognized the group because of the organization’s policy mandating that its leaders must be Christian.
Wayne State argued that the group’s rule violates the university’s nondiscrimination policy. The school said it requires the same policy for Hindu and Jewish campus groups.
InterVarsity filed a 20-count complaint alleging that Wayne State violated its First Amendment rights to free speech and to freely exercise its religious beliefs.
Wayne State recertified InterVarsity 3 days after the group sued March 6, 2018.
