Oregon State University has paid $1,000 plus $100,000 in legal fees to a former student to settle a lawsuit over the confiscation of distribution boxes for a conservative-leaning student newspaper.
Supporters of the newspaper called The Liberty sued the school in 2009, alleging the university president and other school officials granted the official campus newspaper numerous bins while restricting The Libertys distribution.
The suit alleged that school officials confiscated distribution bins for The Liberty and tossed them onto a trash heap. The bins, which contained copies of the paper, were allegedly removed without notice and thrown next to a dumpster.

Beaver Builds Damn
The Liberty has ceased publication, the campus makes a payout that will barely cover a single student’s loans, the indoctrination of the sheep continues.
The lawyer gets $100K.
The wronged party gets $1K.
What’s wrong with this picture?
“Whats wrong with this picture?”
The lawyer hasnt taken his share of that 1000
Another zero for the plaintiff would be another 2 zeroes for the attorney.
Five years of my life for a grand? Not worth it. But the lawyer snagged a nice stipend.
