The Department of Justice recently filed a “Statement of Interest” in attempts to hinder YAF events, in particular with regard to USC Berkeley’s handling of YAF’s Ben Shapiro event last September.
In filing the Statement of Interest, Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand provided the following statement:
“This Department of Justice will not stand by idly while public universities violate students’ constitutional rights.”
