Lawsuit seeks to force university to stop teaching offensive speech by students The lawsuit is the biggest news of 2016, and it’s just one of many to come, according to Fox Sports sources.

It alleges that students and faculty at UM and other schools have been taught that “the University is a place where people of different races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, etc. can come together, be free from the shackles of fear and intolerance, and engage in diverse discussions about important social and political issues.”
The lawsuit also claims that UM has “systematically failed to meet its obligation to protect students and members of its community from the consequences of speech that incites hatred, violence, fear, and/or violence.”
The suit is a big one for the school and the school is expected to announce an internal investigation.
