See this here petard? 

Ian Maitland makes a very good point in discussing the Solomon Amendment case before the Supreme Court:
Justice Frankfurter once called control of the hiring of faculty members and admission of students two of the �essential principles of academic freedom.� That sounds almost quaint after decades during which university faculty members and administrators have meekly acquiesced in detailed federal supervision of their hiring and admissions practices.
In for a penny, in for a pound. SCOTUSblog says the amendment likely stands.
