The Berkeley students that invited Ann Coulter to speak on campus have announced they will sue if the University does not allow her to speak on as planned, on April 27th. The school cancelled her even on the 27th citing “security concerns” and moved the event to May 2nd, prompting this Coulter Tweet:
In addition to facts: We've already spent $ for 4/27 Berkeley spc & I can't do May 2…THERE ARE NO CLASSES AT BERKELEY THE WEEK OF MAY 2!!!

From The Washington Examiner:
Harmeet Dhillon, who is representing the Berkeley College Republicans, sent a letter to UC Berkeley’s interim vice chancellor and chief attorney threatening to file a lawsuit in federal court if Coulter is not allowed to speak on campus on April 27, the Associated Press reported.
“It is a sad day indeed when the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement, is morphing before our eyes into the cemetery of free speech on college campuses,” the letter said.
Coulter declared she will attend the even as originally planned anyway, placing the responsibility of protecting her on law enforcement.
