U. of Mich. sued for funding student events
based on which views it prefers

Alliance Defending Freedom represents Young Americans for Liberty

 

DETROIT — Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit Friday against the University of Michigan on behalf of a student organization denied funding strictly because of its views. University officials denied the group funds from mandatory student activity fees based on its views because officials say they prohibit such funding for “political” or “religious” events; however, the university has provided funding to other groups involved in political and religious speech.
