NYU Anti Semitism Case Settles After Amene Hussain and Others Tried to Intervene

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 8 – A New York University professor's motion to intervene in the lawsuit in which three students assert and try to prevent anti-Semitism at NYU was heard on March 21 - and denied, by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Loretta A. Preska. Inner City Press was there and live tweeted, here:

Prof. Andrew Ross' opposed motion to intervene is being argued and, it seems, ruled on. 

Judge: Prof Ross' interest is too remote for automatic intervention. Plaintiffs seek to enjoin discrimination. They assert NYU has been deliberately indifferent over the past 5 months. They allege two dozen instances - they do not seek a speech code

 Judge: Mandatory intervention is not warranted. There is no showing NYU is not representing Prof Ross' interest. 

Ross' lawyer: I have another client, suspended under the IHRA definition.

 Judge: There is no information about this new client.

  But it seemed Ross' lawyer would be submitting another motion, with this other client.

And on April 5, he did: the affidavit of Ameme Hussain says among other things she is affiliated with Decolonize This Place, which began as / at a protest of the Brooklyn Museum in 2016.  On January 23, 2024, she says, her class was canceled by the NYU administration. She is now seeking to intervene as a defendant.

On April 15, Judge Preska set a schedule; a July 9 hearing was set.

Then, the day before, a settlement without details: "ORDER: The Court has received joint notification from the parties that they have settled the above-captioned case and will promptly file a joint stipulation of settlement. Accordingly, the oral argument scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, is canceled. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Loretta A. Preska on 7/8/2024)."

 Inner City Press will remain on the case / issue.

 It is Ingber, et al., v. New York University, 23-cv-10023 (Preska)
