As expected, the judge in the ACSI lawsuit against the University of California rejected the UC’s motion to dismiss and ruled that the case will go to trial. I don’t have a copy of the ruling yet, but I hope to have one soon. This is the case where a group of Christian schools is suing the UC because they will not grant credit in the admissions process for a few of their courses. The ACSI claims this violates their free speech and free exercise rights, while the UC says that they have the right to set admissions standards and determine which courses meet those standards and which don’t. Having seen the biology curriculum and text, I can tell you that at least in that particular instance, the UC is absolutely justified in rejecting those courses for credit. I think they’re on a bit shakier ground with the literature and humanities courses, but I haven’t seen those texts.
