Groups sue UC Berkeley over Ann Coulter appearance

Groups sue UC Berkeley over Ann Coulter appearanceTwo conservative groups filed a lawsuit against the University of California at Berkeley claiming that a decision to cancel an appearance by the firebrand pundit Ann Coulter violated their right to free speech. The Berkeley College Republicans and Young America’s Foundation, which had invited Coulter to speak on April 27, accused the university of seeking to silence conservative viewpoints and stifle political discourse at the famously progressive campus by imposing unreasonable demands on campus events involving certain “high-profile” speakers. “Defendants’ discriminatory imposition of curfew and venue restrictions has resulted in the cancellation of two speaking engagements featuring prominent conservative speakers in the month of April, 2017,” read the lawsuit filed in federal court in San Francisco.
