Private school can expel lesbians

A state appeals court ruled Wednesday a religious high school in Southern California can expel students it believes are lesbians.

The case stemmed from the expulsion of two girls from California Lutheran High School in Riverside County, back in 2005.

The judges said private schools are not covered by California's civil rights laws.

A lawyer for the two girls plans to talk to his clients about appealing this recent decision to California's Supreme Court.
