Example text

According to the Court, the Solomon Amendment did not infringe on rights of free speech because the law did not force law schools to say (or prevent them from saying) anything at all—or at least not anything that was constitutionally relevant. Even though the Solomon Amendment required law schools to speak in limited instances on behalf of military recruiters—sending e-mails to students, posting notices on bulletin boards, distributing JAG Corps materials, and scheduling interviews—the Court decided their words did not count as protected speech under the Constitution because law schools routinely provided the same administrative assistance to all employers.

For all these reasons it was disappointing to discover how well military law students have already learned the artificial and dysfunctional way we typically discuss military-related subjects in a legal setting. Without doubt they had assimilated the point of view reflected in Justice Scalia’s comments during oral argument in which he all but closed the door to any discussion. For Scalia, it was as simple as this: if the subject was the military, the discussion was over. He believed courts should have little or no role in deciding whether a law related to military service violated the Constitution, and that once Congress had spoken, Congress should not be second-guessed.

Early in his Supreme Court tenure, Rehnquist wrote dissenting opinions in two cases involving constitutional challenges to decisions made by military officials, Flower v. United States4 in 1972 and Frontiero v. 5 Flower was a case about the Vietnam War and the passionate disagreement it provoked among Americans, both civilian and military. Frontiero was a case about the changing economic and legal status of women that was filed by a female military officer who believed she should not be paid less than men of the same rank just because she was female.
