Scouts sue city in wrangle over gays

From Times Wire Reports

A Boy Scouts chapter engaged in a long fight over gay rights has sued the city of Philadelphia to try to avoid paying $200,000 a year to rent the city-owned space that has been its headquarters for 80 years.

The Cradle of Liberty Council currently pays $1 a year, but the city has given it until Saturday to open membership to gays or pay fair-market rent.
