University of Kansas Seeks Dismissal of Newspaper Cuts Suit

KSAL StaffMarch 22, 2016

The University of Kansas is seeking the dismissal of a federal lawsuit that alleges administrators allowed the Student Senate to illegally cut the student newspaper’s funding based on its content.

The school says the case lacks merit, noting in a court filing that the University Daily Kansan now prints two days a week instead of four. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the filing says the reductions were the reason given for cutting the newspaper’s student fee revenues to $45,000 from $90,000.

In February, the newspaper’s current and former editors-in-chief sued Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and the vice provost for student affairs. The suit cites a number of former Senate members’ statements that indicate their decision to cut funding was based on dissatisfaction with the newspaper’s coverage of the Senate.
