ACLU to Decide Stance on Augusta


The American Civil Liberties Union could decide by as soon as this week whether to take a position on the controversy surrounding Augusta National Golf Club's exclusively male membership.
Dan Berger, media liaison for the ACLU, said leaders in the organization discussed the issue last week but had not reached a decision.
The Women's Rights Project of the ACLU, a group of lawyers within the organization with expertise in women's rights issues, conducted a conference call to discuss the matter, he said.
The ACLU also was discussing the issue with its Georgia office before taking a position.
