Boy Scouts of America vs. Dale


Boy Scouts of America vs. Dale was a court decision wither or not Boy Scouts can have a gay leader. People thought that having a gay Scout leader might undermine the groups goals or purposes. An assistant Scoutmaster named James Dale, lost his membership in the Monmouth Council's Cub Scout Pack 142, when he was found out to be a homosexual. The Supreme Court of the United States overturned The New Jersey Superior Court, and James Dale was represented by Evan Wolfson, who has worked on many same-sex marriage cases. The freedom of association says that any organization has the right to exclude anybody who it wishes. The case lasted from April 26, 2000 until June 28, 2000.
