Fordham Students File First Amendment Suit to Establish Students for Justice in Palestine Group

In a case that highlights what some are calling the “Palestine exception” to free speech on college campuses across the nation, we look at students who are suing Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus in New York for their right to start a Students for Justice in Palestine group. The student government approved the group unanimously, but the dean of students overruled the approval, saying the group would “stir up controversy” and be “polarizing.” On Wednesday, the students asked a judge to reinstate the student government’s approval. DN! speaks with Ahmad Awad, who has graduated from Fordham University and is the lead petitioner, now a law student at Rutgers University. They also speak with Dima Khalidi, director of Palestine Legal.
