The Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal (“AELJ”) strongly and unequivocally condemns Yeshiva University’s treatment of its LGBTQ+ undergraduate students. New York courts found that Yeshiva University’s refusal to recognize and fund the undergraduate LGBTQ+ group, Pride Alliance, was in violation of NYC Human Rights Law because Yeshiva University is chartered as an educational corporation, receives public funds, and is, therefore, not eligible for the Human Rights Law religious corporation exemption. Yeshiva now petitions the Supreme Court of the United States to stay that judgment so it may continue to discriminate against LGBTQ+ students in the name of religious freedom.
