Student groups threaten to sue UC Berkeley over Ann Coulter visit

SFGate Ann CoulterAnn Coulter
Friday, 21 April 2017 ()

Let her speak on campus Thursday evening or they will sue the university in federal court on grounds it is violating the students’ constitutional rights. The Berkeley College Republicans and a nonpartisan student group, BridgeUSA, gave administrators a 5 p.m. Friday deadline to decide, and have hired San Francisco attorney Harmeet Dhillon to help them. University officials on Tuesday canceled Coulter’s talk, citing recent violent protests in Berkeley and a riot that caused a $100,000 damage Feb. 1 when another right-wing personality, Milo Yiannopoulos tried to speak on campus. Coulter refused, noting that May 2 falls within “Dead Week” when classes are suspended and students are studying for finals. [...] Coulter said, she’s busy that day. The cancellation of Coulter’s speech also “comes on the heels of UC Berkeley’s similar silencing of two other speakers,” Yiannopoulos and David Horowitz, both conservative activists, whose talks were “cancelled at the last minute on the pretext of being unable to provide adequate security,” Dhillon said.
