One Comment on “ACLU Town Hall On Presidential Power”

  1. 1 Chetly Zarko said at 9:21 pm on February 18th, 2006:

    It strikes me that the agreement only returns Michiguama to the pre-1989 status of the organization which was “under investigation”, which was then being investigated by the Michigan Civil Rights Commission but that the outcome of that investigation or MCRC’s ability to enforce action was unknown.

    The agreement states only that if violated, the other parties and MCRC would be able to prosecute Michiguama to the fullest extent permitted under the law (that is, the student complainant was giving up theoretical legal rights to sue so long as Michiguama complied, but that the outcome of such a suit was never certain).

    This means that the plaintiff in this suit need to prove 1) the agreement was violated 2) a claim of action beyond the violation of the agreement that would entitle them to legal relief. The latter will be far more difficult than the former, and that’s also where the First Amendment will enter into play.

    Again, I reiterate my finding that Michiguama is a disgusting organization for many reasons.
