Berkeley v U. S. Justice Department

, Malcolm A. Kline, 1 Comment

Maybe not for the first time but perhaps for a new reason. “The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a statement of interest Thursday in a campus free speech lawsuit against the University of California, Berkeley,” Rob Shimschock reports in The Daily Caller.

“’This Department of Justice will not stand by idly while public universities violate students’ constitutional rights,’ said Rachel Brand, the DOJ’s Associate Attorney General, in the press release announcing the statement.
Young America’s Foundation and the Berkeley College Republicans allege that the university adopted a double standard with regard to free speech and particularly high-profile college speakers, according to a press release obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.”

    This is a very good thing. The defendant list must be expanded to include student and non-student organizations that were complicit in preventing any speaker from appearing on campus.
