Harvard Sued For Discriminating Against Jewish Student’s Civil Rights


Harvard students are now suing the university, claiming that the college has allowed an “antisemitism cancer’ to grow.

The prestigious university has come under fire recently due to the recently resigned president allegedly plagiarizing as a student as well as spreading anti-Semitic remarks.

This is the result of an organization that supports pro-terrorist ideologies propped up by the left.

Fox News has more on the lawsuit:

Harvard University is being sued by students for what they claim is an “antisemitism cancer” growing on campus, accusing the institution of “hir[ing] professors who support anti-Jewish violence” and “ignoring students’ pleas for protection.”

“Harvard and its administrators… directly and intentionally discriminate against… Jewish Harvard student[s],” the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday by Kasowitz Benson Torres (KBT), a major New York City law firm that has been investigating colleges for allegedly violating Jewish students’ Title VI civil rights.

KBT recently hit New York University with litigation, the first of what is expected to be a series of legal actions from the firm against elite universities.

Title VI prohibits any institution that receives federal funding from discriminating against groups on the basis of race, color, or national origin. The lawsuit alleges that the antisemitism is “severe and pervasive” and that it created a “hostile environment” where Jewish students are “unsafe against their abusers.”

I’m not sure that anybody is surprised by this news.

The Associated Press News shares more on the lawsuit:

Marc Kasowitz, a partner at the law firm that brought the suit, Kasowitz Benson Torres, said in a statement that the litigation was necessary because Harvard would not “correct its deep-seated antisemitism problem voluntarily.”

“Harvard must be forced to protect its Jewish students and stop applying a double standard when it comes to anti-Jewish bigotry,” he added.

A spokesman for Harvard said the school doesn’t comment on pending litigation. About a dozen students are potentially facing disciplinary charges for violations of protest rules related to pro-Palestinian activities, but the spokesman said the school couldn’t comment on their cases.

Fallout from the Israel-Hamas war has roiled campuses across the U.S. and reignited a debate over free speech. College leaders have struggled to define the line where political speech crosses into harassment and discrimination, with Jewish and Arab students raising concerns that their schools are doing too little to protect them.

Other liberal universities that allow this to be fostered should be fearful.

Once these students at Harvard get the ball rolling.

I am sure you will see more lawsuits springing up.
