Are there other Court Cases related to the BSA joining policies

The ACLU in Minnesota has filed suit attempting to limit the BSA recruiting in St. Paul public schools. At issue is just how much help a public, tax-funded body can provide to a private group that maintains restrictions based on religious views. While courts have upheld the right of such groups to limit membership for religious reasons, the MCLU says they cannot get public support.

There are a number of court cases in which the BSA is not a subject of the suite, however the suite is concerning BSA units being afiliated with certain institutions.
