Volley and Cheering.  The Second Circuit upheld a District Court's issuance of a permanent injuntion, preventing Quinnipiac University from eliminating its women's volley ball program.  The District Court had held that Quinnipiac's proposed elimination of the program would violate Title IX.  The Circuit Court agreed and held that competitive cheer leading is not a sport and, accordingly, the existence of Quinnipiac's varsity competitive cheer leading squad should not be considered in determining whether Quinnipiac had been discriminating against women in providing athletice opportunities.

The decision in Biediger v. Quinnipiac University can be found here.
