UT Young Conservatives threaten school with lawsuit after backlash against 'affirmative action bake sale'

AUSTIN — A conservative student group at the University of Texas at Austin is threatening the school with legal action after the administration condemned the club's "affirmative action bake sale" as "inflammatory and demeaning."

"If any punitive action is taken against the Young Conservatives of Texas chapter at The University of Texas at Austin [YCT-UT] or our members on account of their speech, we will take legal action against the university and all persons involved for deprivation of civil rights," the club said in a letter sent to campus President Greg Fenves on Tuesday. "Any policies adopted or embraced by the university that infringe upon those rights will be fought in court, in the Legislature, and on campus."
