DU - MENORAH -Menorah Ministries - SETTLE – LAWSUIT A G A I N !
I. 18 years ago Menorah
Ministries and the University of Denver settled a law suit that allowed Menorah Ministries free speech rights on the Denver
University campus. See Information.
II. Denver University has again agreed to settle (Four
days before the court date.) a new law suit that was filed by Menorah
Ministries in July of 2012 in Denver District court. In April of 2012
Denver University broke our 1995 settlement agreement after the
D.U. Clarion student newspaper twice accused Menorah of spreading ‘Hate
Speech’. A couple of students complained about one of
Menorah’s pamphlets being passed out. Denver University told us
we could not continue to use our campus information tables for speaking with
students unless we agreed to a new agreement that highly restricted our free
speech rights and sharply increased our ministry cost there.
This week the two
parties have again settled and
Menorah Ministries free speech rights on the Denver University campus
have been restored as
While we have agreed to not reveal our new agreement details,
please know that the Lord has blessed us. A special thank you goes to
James Rouse of the Rouse Law Office and the Rutherford Institute.
