Solomon (Amendment)'s Singing Voice is Rusting 

The US District Court for the District of Connecticut has granted summary judgment for the plaintiffs in Burt v. Rumsfeld, the case brought by Yale Law School faculty members in protest of the application of the Solomon Amendment. Full details at NESL OUTLaws. The key paragraph:
Accordingly, the Solomon Amendment is hereby declared unconstitutional as applied, and the defendant is enjoined from enforcing it against Yale University based upon Yale Law School's Non-Discrimination Policy. The Clerk is ordered to close the case.
