Cal Poly Settles Suit  

The case against Steve Hinkle at Cal Poly-SLO has been settled. His legal bill for $40k is paid off and his record cleared. This has taken almost a year since we first reported his being found guilty of "disrupting a meeting" in a mutlicultural center by putting up flyers for a talk to be given by Mason Weaver. According to a press release from FIRE, who represented Hinkle, the university
repudiates its overbroad definition of �disruption� and agrees that �disruption� actually must be willful and must �materially and substantially disrupt a University activity or the orderly operation of the University.�
