Article on the UC Lawsuit

The Sacramento Bee has an article about the upcoming trial over the University of California’s rejection of certain courses from a Christian school for credit in their admissions process. I reviewed the biology textbook when the suit was first filed and there is no question that it should be rejected for credit by any serious…

UC Lawsuit Will Continue

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…

Update on UC Lawsuit

USA Today has an article about the ACSI lawsuit against the University of California system over the lack of accreditation for a few of their courses. Despite rhetoric from the ACSI about the UC discriminating against Christians and trying to keep kids from Christians schools from attending their colleges, the article notes: UC has certified…

I would like to follow that trial nearly as…

UC Lawsuit Editorial

I’m sure most of my regular readers remember the lawsuit filed against the University of California system (see here, here and here) because they won’t give credit for certain classes used by some Christian schools in that state that don’t meet their academic requirements. The San Jose Mercury News had an excellent editorial on the…

One of the most fascinating things about the lawsuit against the UC is that they appear to have pulled the legal arguments out of thin air. For instance, the ACSI states in their newsletter: ACSI seeks to preserve the right of Christian school graduates to attend the college or university of their choice. I can’t…
