The question is moot
In Beta Upsilon Chi v. Machen (Oct. 27, 2009, Tjoflat, Edmonson, Hill), the Court discussed at length the University of Florida's nondiscrimination policy for registered student organizations and Beta Upsilon Chi's Christian focus . . . and then found that the controversy was moot when UF changed its policy and allowed Beta Upsilon Chi to become a registered student organization. The case contains a nice summary of the law of justiciable controversies, including voluntary cessation.
