Boy Scouts of America v. Dale

Boy Scouts of America v. Dale, 530 U.S. 640, is an opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States overturning the New Jersey Supreme Court's application of the New Jersey public accommodations law forcing the Boy Scouts of America to readmit assistant scoutmaster James Dale, who had been expelled after publicly declaring his homosexuality. The Supreme Court held that the lower court's decision unconstitutionally violated the Boy Scouts' rights, specifically the right of free association[?], which allows a private organization to exclude whomever it wishes.
