SOUTH ROYALTON, Vt.—Vermont Law School, which bans military recruiting on its campus until gays are allowed to openly serve, will hold a town hall meeting calling for an end to the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

The free event, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Chase Community Center, is sponsored by the Vermont Law School's Gay-Straight Alliance and the Student Bar Association.

A panel that includes alumnus Capt. Rory Thibault of the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Corps will discuss the school's nondiscrimination policy and the Solomon Amendment, a federal law that withholds some federal research money from schools that don't give military recruiters the same campus access as other employers.
