Lawsuit Claims San Francisco State University Fostered Anti-Semitism on Campus

(Washington Post) Susan Svrluga - A group of students filed a lawsuit Monday against San Francisco State University, alleging that the school fostered a climate of anti-Semitism "marked by violent threats to the safety of Jewish students on campus." The suit alleges that the school violated the plaintiffs' constitutional rights to free speech and equal protection, as well as the Civil Rights Act. "I didn't have the right to speak on my own campus; I felt afraid as a Jewish student," said Jacob Mandel, a recent graduate. He said "the administration was actively working against me." "There is a tactic to silence people with whom extreme members of society don't agree," said Amanda Berman, director of legal affairs with the Lawfare Project. "There's a sense that people don't have a right to speak if certain communities don't want that message to get out."
