University pays YAL to settle anti-discrimination suit

University of Michigan pays libertarian student group to settle political discrimination lawsuit - Ann Arbor Journal - Heritage Newspapers:

July 10, 2014 - "The University of Michigan has settled a lawsuit brought by a student libertarian club after the university spent thousands supporting leftist campus groups while denying funding to campus conservative and libertarian clubs.

"The university agreed to pay the U-M Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) a sum of $5,000 plus attorney fees for denying the student group funding toward an event hosted by anti-affirmative action activist Jennifer Gratz....

"The student government denied YAL's request for financial support of Gratz's visit, citing a policy of not funding 'political' events.
