Dhillon on DOJ Statement for UC Berkeley 1A Rights

UC Berkeley First Amendment

Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News Channel’s ‘The Story’ To Discuss UC-Berkeley Lawsuit

According to Harmeet:
Right after Ann Coulter speech was shut down effectively, we filed this lawsuit. The University moved to dismiss through its outside lawyers paid for by taxpayers. They also changed their policy in writing. The judged agreed to allow us to amend our lawsuit to reflect challenge to their new policy. The new policy is basically the same as the old policy but using different language. Instead of “High-Profile Speakers”, they are calling it “Major Events”. But it has the same constitutional defects that the Department of Justice has identified.

In the second round the motion to dismiss, the DOJ filed a statement of interest last week and agreed that our lawsuit should be allowed to proceed. The court should decide whether Berkeley violated its constitution by multiple restrictions on conservative speech on campus. We will be arguing this motion in court in two weeks.
