A groundbreaking lawsuit has been filed against NYU on behalf of three Jewish students, alleging that the university has egregiously violated their civil rights after facing antisemitic hatred, discrimination, harassment and intimidation.
The complaint reports NYU—in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964—has refused to enforce its own policies, which it readily applies to protect other victims of race, color, or national origin-based prejudice.
The students also allege that nearly every day since Hamas’s horrific terrorist attack on Israel on October 7, Jewish students have been taunted with disgusting antisemitic slurs; having their complaints ignored, slow-walked, or met with gaslighting by the NYU administration.
The students are requesting that the Court order NYU to implement institutional measures, including by terminating NYU personnel and students responsible for such abuse.
