The university offered to reschedule the event for May 2, but Coulter and the student group that invited her said no. And the events highlight lessons other colleges might have to learn in order to both honor their dedication to free speech and protect the safety of students and speakers.
However, Reuters and The New York Times report that Coulter said in an emailed statement that she made a decision to cancel the speech after conservative groups backed out of sponsoring the event. Their lawyer, Harmeet Dhillon, was on hand to discuss the lawsuit, and said they are pursuing an injunction to prevent the university from unequally applying rules and access. "Everyone who should be for free speech has turned tail and run". "It's way beyond one speech or one speaker".

Mogulof, the university spokesman, said the school asks for two months notice of an event so it can work out logistics and security. "Full stop", but said "not every venue is available on every day".
He said the university was deferring to the police assessment of a significant security threat, adding that "we can not allow it to be held in a venue with a limited number of exits; in a hall that can not be cordoned off; in an auditorium with floor to ceiling glass; in any space that does not meet basic safety criteria established by UCPD". He said some groups have tried to use the cover of darkness during nighttime events to take violent action without being recognized.
University officials last week rejected the original Coulter date on grounds they lacked a safe campus venue to host her speech on that day, citing the violence by left-wing protesters over Yiannopoulos' scheduled appearance.
