Stanford apologizes after law students disrupt judge’s speech

Stanford University officials have apologized to a federal judge after law students disrupted his campus appearance last week, while a new video of the event showed the judge lashing out at the students’ behavior.

“What happened was inconsistent with our policies on free speech, and we are very sorry about the experience you had while visiting our campus,” Stanford president Marc Tessier-Lavigne and law dean Jenny Martinez wrote in a Saturday letter to 5th U.S. Circuit Judge Stuart Kyle Duncan, a 2018 appointee of former President Donald Trump.

Duncan visited the Palo Alto law school on Thursday to deliver remarks to the campus chapter of the conservative Federalist Society.
