California Judge Rules Expulsion by Private Schools Based on Sexual Orientation is Legal
In October 2005, two female students at California Lutherian High School were expelled after the school's principal, Gregory Bork, concluded that they were gay.
A month earlier, another student at the school told Bork that he should look at the students' MySpace pages. Bork looked at the pages, and he found that one girl identified herself as bisexual, and the other expressed uncertainty about her sexual orientation. Bork subsequently met with each of the girls separately in an attempt to determine whether they were gay.
As for what occurred during those meetings, Bork claimed that each girl said she often kissed and hugged the other, and that they had told friends they were lesbians. The girls, however, said that what they told him was that they loved each other as friends.
