Interesting Sidelight

I left out an interesting sidelight in my previous post, A Growing Consensus. The two cases to rule against the associational rights of student organizations, Kane and Truth, also happen to be unpublished. Perhaps this is an indication the courts deciding those cases aren't even sure themselves they got it right.

If you're interested, Kane is available on Westlaw at 2006 WL 997217, and Truth is available through the Western District of Washington's PACER website at docket no. 2:03-cv-00785. Both websites unfortunately require users to have a paid account to access content. If anyone knows of a free source for these opinions, I'm happy to post the links.
