CBS4 (KCNC-TV) reported Tuesday night that I am bringing a lawsuit against Colorado State University.

This is grossly inaccurate. I was not interviewed by CBS4 for this report.

Neither the university nor Student Media have punished the Editorial Board or myself for printing the F-Bush editorial.

I was advised by professional staff to seek legal counsel before Wednesday’s meeting of the Board of Student Communications and for a later meeting where the Board will decide whether or not to take action.

Denver attorney David Lane has agreed to join me for the latter meeting.

I have no plans to sue CSU at this point. Considering the poor funding of higher education in Colorado and CSU’s struggle to get more money from the state, I find this report very troubling.

This fight is not about financial gain, but rather defending the Editorial Board’s First Amendment rights.
