STILLWATER - An anti-abortion group is suing Oklahoma State University, saying officials refused to allow them to distribute leaflets on campus.
Cowboys for Life, an OSU student organization, claims that OSU officials singled out the group because it opposes abortion rights. The lawsuit was filed Friday in federal court in Oklahoma City.
The group seeks to have OSU's facilities-use policy - the policy that dictates when and how groups may use facilities - declared invalid. The group also is seeking $10,000 in damages.
The group had sought to hand out leaflets and carry signs in October at three locations on campus. The lawsuit alleges that Kent Sampson, OSU's director of campus life, refused to allow the group to display graphic images in heavily trafficked areas of campus.
