NYU law student group moves to oust president post Hamas remarks

NY Post writes

New York University’s Law Student Bar Association on Wednesday moved to oust its president, who had penned a controversial pro-Hamas column in the school’s newsletter, as school brass issued yet another statement condemning the comments.

The backlash came a day after group president Ryna Workman posted a message accusing Israel of “state-sanctioned violence” and saying it bore “full responsibility” for the barbaric and highly coordinated terror attacks that killed more than 1,200 Israelis Saturday.

On Wednesday, members of the Student Bar Association released a statement saying they did not “write, approve, or see this message” before it was published, and said Workman did not speak for them.

The SBA board moved to remove Workman, who identifies as non-binary, as president, a process that will require two hearings later this month, according to the statement, which claimed students were being doxxed, harassed and threatened with death after the posting was made.

Meanwhile the prestigious Greenwich Village law school released a statement — the second from school officials since the column was published — that sought to make “several things abundantly clear on behalf of the NYU Law Board of Trustees and our Law School as a whole.”
