Justice Sotomayor Stays NY Order Requiring Yeshiva University To Recognize LGBTQ Group


In Yeshiva University v. YU Pride Alliance, (Sup. Ct., Sept. 9, 2022),  U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor today issued an order staying a New York trial court’s injunction that required Yeshiva University to officially recognize as a student organization an LGBTQ group, YU Pride Alliance. The New York trial court held that applying the public accommodation provisions of the New York City Human Rights Law to Yeshiva does not violate its First Amendment free exercise or free speech rights. (See prior posting.) Justice Sotomayor granted the University’s Emergency Application for a Stay Pending Appellate Review without referring the petition to the full Court. However she wrote that her stay was granted “pending further order of the undersigned or of the Court.” CNN reports on developments.
