Doe v. California Lutheran High School Association[edit]

Prior to May 2009 the school accused two 16-year-old girls of possessing "bond of intimacy" "characteristic of a lesbian relationship" and expelled them both. In 2009 the California Supreme Court ruled that it did not have to comply with the Unruh Civil Rights Act a California state law preventing businesses from discriminating because the school was a social organization and not a business. This was based on a 1998 state supreme decision that defined the Boy Scouts as a social organization.[18]
