Victims of doctor sue U of Michigan over public speech limit

Associated Press

DETROIT (AP) — The University of Michigan is being sued by 10 people who say they were sexually assaulted by a campus doctor. The school is accused of violating Michigan law by limiting the number of people who can speak at public meetings held by its governing board. Victims of the late Dr. Robert Anderson say they were denied a chance to speak at a July meeting. Attorney Parker Stinar says it’s “traumatizing” for them. The university says it has a right to set limits. It also notes that some Anderson victims did speak in July. Hundreds of men say they were molested by Anderson while he served at the University of Michigan. He died in 2008. The university has acknowledged that assaults occurred.
