Yale Law School (YLS) did not allow press or non-community members to attend an event featuring conservative lawyer Kristen Waggoner Tuesday afternoon and reportedly told students not to record the event in an attempt to minimize coverage, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Waggoner, CEO of conservative legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), spoke Tuesday alongside Nadine Strossen, former American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) president, about 303 Creative, a First Amendment case currently pending before the Supreme Court. YLS did not allow non-students or press to attend the event and told students not to take videos or photos inside the event after a previous event featuring Waggoner went viral for being disrupted by more than 100 protesters, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
“It’s one thing to take steps to protect against physical disruption,” Strossen told the Beacon. “But is there any evidence that members of the press were responsible for the disruptive protest in the past?”
