University of California Settles Lawsuit Alleging Anti-Semitism at Berkeley
by Peter Schmidt
The University of California has settled a lawsuit that accused it of tolerating anti-Semitism on its Berkeley campus, pledging as part of its agreement with the plaintiffs to consider tweaks in its policies governing campus protests to prevent situations that Jewish students have called intimidating.
The settlement appears unlikely to end the university's dispute with advocates for Jewish students at Berkeley, however. Lawyers for the plaintiffs in the case this week filed complaints with two federal agencies, the Justice Department and the Education Department's Office for Civil Rights, urging them to investigate what they describe as "a pervasive hostile environment toward Jews" on the campus.
