We Can't Allow You to Make Your Own Rules

George Leef

According to this Inside Higher Ed piece, the hyper-litigious George Washington U. law professor John Banzhaf is suing Catholic University over its decision to go back to single-sex dorms. The grounds for the suit? Banzhaf says that “segregated” dorms would violate the District of Columbia’s Human Rights Act.

The suit is ridiculous. You have to wonder exactly what living arrangements would satisfy Banzhaf’s notion of non-segregation. Couldn’t anything short of a single giant room where everyone mingles with everyone else be called “segregation”? I sure hope that the judge who gets this case dismisses it and hits Banzhaf with Catholic University’s costs in defending it.

You get nonsense like this whenever government intrudes on private decision-making.
