The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday let stand lower court rulings dismissing a lawsuit by a men’s sports advocacy group opposed to James Madison University’s 2006 decision to eliminate seven men’s teams and three women’s teams. 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.
