A judge has ruled that grand jury transcripts will remain sealed in the case of 11 Muslim students charged with disrupting a speech given by an Israeli ambassador last year on the University of California, Irvine campus.
Eleven Muslim students charged with disrupting a speech by the Israeli ambassador to the U.S. at a California university are due in court.
Eleven Muslim students are set to be arraigned Friday on charges of disrupting a speech by Israeli ambassador Michael Oren at the University of California, Irvine, in a case that has stoked intense debate about the freedom of speech.
The university said Friday it will lift the Muslim Student Union’s suspension Dec. 31 instead of enforcing it for a full year. However, the group will be on probation for two years instead of one and members must complete 100 hours of community service.
