Professor who told his class to erase pro-life chalking pays $17,000 to settle lawsuit
Mandatory First Amendment training, too
If you disagree with pro-life student activists, have a civil conversation with them. Especially if you’re a professor at a public university.
Gregory Thatcher agreed to pay $17,000 to such students and their lawyers to settle a First and Fourteenth Amendment lawsuit against the Fresno State University public-health professor, who is legally a “government official.”
Thatcher had sicced his class on the administration-authorized chalking by the Students for Life chapter this spring, falsely claiming the pro-life students could only chalk in a “free speech zone” eliminated years earlier, according to the suit filed by the Alliance Defending Freedom. He also joined in the de-chalking.
The California professor will pay $1,000 each to two student club leaders, Bernadette Tasy and Jesus Herrera, and $15,000 to the alliance for attorneys’ fees, the alliance said Thursday. He’ll also “undergo two hours of First Amendment training by ADF Center for Academic Freedom attorneys.”
