CSU clarifies meaning of ‘civil’ after suit
March 6, 2008 3:05 PM
After settling the College Republicans’ lawsuit against SF State on Tuesday, the California State University will clarify the word “civil” in its Student Conduct Code and exempt its violation’s prior potential as grounds for discipline.
The lawsuit stemmed from an incident in 2006 when subsequently, the College Republicans faced consequences for violating the school’s student civil conduct code after complaints were filed against them for stomping on a flag with the name Allah. Charges were later dropped, but the suit continued.
“We are happy that the entire CSU system changed the code,” said Trent Downes, College Republicans president.
“I believe it’s going to protect all students in the future.”
