Judge rules on RCF case

Surprisingly, the Cardinal is the only paper to report this. 

From my understanding, the ruling states that the university used a reasonable, yet incorrect interpretation of the law when withholding funds from the Roman Catholic Foundation.  Since the interpretation was reasonable, the university does not need to repay withheld funds, but they cannot continue to withhold funds under the current set of laws and univerisity policies.  

However, the university could create a criterion for funding that would prohibit the use of segregated fees for expressed religious purposes, as long as this criterion is view-point neutral.  

Well, that isn’t confusing…
