UC Berkeley Will Face Lawsuit Claiming Bias

A federal judge rejected the University of California at Berkeley’s bid to dismiss a lawsuit claiming it discriminated against conservative speakers.


(Reuters) - A federal judge rejected the University of California at Berkeley’s bid to dismiss a lawsuit claiming it discriminated against conservative speakers like Ann Coulter by imposing unreasonable restrictions and fees on their appearances.

District Judge Maxine Chesney in San Francisco said two conservative groups could pursue claims that the school applied its “high-profile speaker” and “major events” policies in a manner that unfairly suppressed conservative speech. While saying the policy was not too vague, Chesney said the plaintiffs may pursue an equal protection claim over a security fee charged for an appearance by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro that was well above a fee at the same venue for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, part of the court’s liberal bloc.




Conservative news outlets have reported on instances of BIAS on several occasions, leading many to believe there is indeed BIAS among the ranks at UC Berkeley.
