Judge Says Suit Charging Campus Anti-Semitism Should be Refiled With Focus On Current Situation

Jewish News of Northern California reports that after a 57-minute pretrial hearing in Mandel v. Board of Trustees of the California State University, federal district court Judge William Orrick said he would dismiss the case with leave to amend. The suit alleges that  "a consistent pattern of anti-Jewish animus has emerged" at San Francisco State University since 1968. (See prior posting.)  The judge instructed that an amended complaint should focus on the current situation at SFSU, not on a 50-year history of anti-Semitism there.
