U.S. Supreme Court likely to rule for the government in Solomon Amendment case

An article in the LA Times starts as follows:

The Supreme Court justices signaled Tuesday that they would uphold the military's right to recruit on college campuses and at law schools, despite its policy of excluding openly gay people from its ranks. The justices gave a thoroughly skeptical hearing to the position of some law faculties that they have a free-speech right to bar military recruiters, a claim that was upheld by a lower court.

SCOTUS Blog has this account of the argument.

The briefs of the parties can be found here.
