White nationalist Richard Spencer calls off University of Cincinnati speech for now [View all]

A planned speech by white nationalist Richard Spencer at the University of Cincinnati is off, for now, though its organizers vow to have Spencer visit campus sometime this year.

Kyle Bristow, an attorney for Spencer, tweeted on Monday that the date for the speaking engagement was off while the lawsuit goes through the courts.

Spencer was scheduled to speak March 14 at the 400-seat Zimmer Hall while UC students are on spring break. However, Cameron Padgett, a Georgia State University student who books speaking engagements for Spencer, filed suit against UC and its president, Neville Pinto, in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on Jan. 8. alleging that a $10,833 security fee UC is charging Spencer amounts to censorship.

The tentative March 14, 2018, date for @RichardBSpencer to speak at the University of Cincinnati has been derailed due to the unconstitutional speech tax that is cost-prohibitive. @CameronVPadgett is now shooting for this summer or fall so court motions can be ruled upon.

Bristow said in an email that Michigan State University is not charging Padgett a security fee per a settlement reached through mediation with the university.
