Supreme Court Declines to Hear Challenge to Sports Cuts

Supreme Court Declines to Hear Challenge to Sports Cuts
January 10, 2012

Equity in Athletics, an advocacy group, had argued that James Madison “overdid its elimination of male athletes," violating Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The U.S. Education Department was added to the case because the group challenged the federal agency's enforcement of Title IX.
