EMU Settles with Students for Life, the Alliance Defending Freedom

Nov 21, 2013

Eastern Michigan University has settled a lawsuit brought by an organization upset that EMU Student Government hadn't helped pay for it to bring its "Genocide Awareness Project" exhibit to campus. 

University spokesperson Geoff Larcom says student government originally said "no" to a request for funding from Students for Life, which had asked for about $5,000 for the exhibit that was on campus April 11th and 12th. 

Student Government declined, but later approved funding and changed its fund allocation policy. 

The Alliance Defending Freedom later joined Students for Life in suing Eastern Michigan University.

Larcom says EMU will pay attorney's fees to the tune of $3,000, and the university's insurance company will pay the cost of the settlement.
