My, my, my, what a difference a week makes.
Elise K. Traynum, General Counsel and Secretary to the Board of Directors at UC Hasting College of Law, has sent Josh a letter informing him that if the event is held on their campus, he must be allowed to attend.
Dear Mr. Berger,
In addition to the UC Hastings’ nondiscrimination policies, the College has a longstanding commitment to a culture of free and open inquiry, spirited debate, and the exploration of diverse ideas. We believe in the fundamental right and responsibility to foster and protect rational discourse in an environment marked both by the rigorous challenge of ideas and by tolerance for the expression of multiple viewpoints.
This afternoon I informed Ms. Thomas, the Executive Director of the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, that you must be allowed to attend the October 25 event if it is held on the College campus.
Thank you for your correspondence.

The ball is now in the Law Center's court. Do they move the event or do they allow their delicate ears to hear opposing voices? Decisions, decisions.
I'm happy to see that Hastings College of Law did the proper thing even though, to be honest, they didn't have much choice given that they are a state supported school.
