As rain and snow pulls away from the I-25 Corridor this morning, our main concern is fog, which could be dense in spots through the morning commute. Roads are of lesser concern, as most should simply be wet. However, secondary roads and any bridges and overpasses away from city warmth could be a bit slick, so please be careful. Head to the "Weather" Tab for more information on the forecast.
The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit today against Palmer High School in Colorado Springs for refusing to recognize a club that includes gays.
The lawsuit says the school has repeatedly refused to recognize the Palmer High Gay-Straight Alliance. Without recognition, the club can't meet on school property on the same terms as other groups. It can't post club information at the school and it's left out of the school's yearbook and official list of student-organized activities.
Mark Silverstein, legal director of the Colorado ACLU, says similar clubs are operating at 50 high schools in Colorado. The federal Equal Access Act requires schools to give equal access to all student clubs. Silverstein says any school that allows clubs that are not class-related must follow the statute.
School district spokeswoman Elaine Naleski says she hasn't seen the lawsuit yet and can't discuss it.
