The panel also ruled recognition of the LGBTQ+ club would not be a violation of the university’s first amendment constitutional rights.“We hope that the University will accept the Pride Alliance’s invitation to resolve the lawsuit by finally recognizing an authentic, student-run, mutually acceptable LGBTQ+ undergraduate student club that operates like all other clubs at YU,” Katie Rosenfeld, Y.U.
