Boy Scouts: Legal bigots?

August 9, 2004

And under a newly proposed ABA conduct rule, America's judges would be prohibited from associating with the Boy Scouts.

When the 400,000-member American Bar Association passes judicial ethics rules, state and federal courts generally adopt and abide by those rules. The latest rule proposal would force judges to end any current involvement they have with organizations that exclude homosexuals, just as judges are not allowed to be a part of the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazi groups or other racist organizations. An ethics panel is discussing the new rule and it could be approved next year.
