In March, Campus Reform reported:
The University of Pennsylvania Faculty for Justice in Palestine group has filed a federal lawsuit against the Ivy League institution in an attempt to stop documents from being sent to a House of Representatives committee investigating campus anti-Semitism.

According to The Daily Pennsylvanian, the lawsuit was filed by two professors with the Penn Faculty for Justice in Palestine group and alleged that the House Committee on Education and the Workforce investigation into anti-Semitism at the institution threatens academic freedom.

“This nation is seeing a new form of McCarthyism, in which accusations of anti-Semitism are substituted for the insinuations of Communist leanings which were the tool of oppression in the 1950’s,” the lawsuit states.
Yes, the supposedly "pro-Palestinian" group is against investigating allegations of antisemitism. Because inciting violence against Jews on campus is free speech, but having third parties scrutinize those statements is un-American. 

If their statements aren't antisemitic, they should welcome anyone reviewing what they say, right?

Luckily, the judge threw the case out:
A federal judge in Pennsylvania recently dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Penn Faculty for Justice in Palestine, which attempted to prevent the University of Pennsylvania administration from complying with an ongoing U.S. House of Representatives committee investigation into the school regarding its efforts to combat anti-Semitism.

Chief U.S. District Court Judge Mitchell Goldberg in an opinion released on June 24... decided that “Plaintiffs lack standing to bring this lawsuit, and I will therefore dismiss Plaintiffs’ complaint and deny their motion for a preliminary injunction.”

“I conclude Plaintiffs lack standing to bring this challenge,” he continued. “They have not alleged what information Penn will disclose or how it will harm them.”
There was other good news from the University of Pennsylvania:
The University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia has changed its protest guidelines to prevent students from forming encampments on campus following the recent pro-Palestine demonstrations at the university.

“To ensure the safety of the Penn community and to protect the health and property of individuals, encampments and overnight demonstrations are not permitted in any University location, regardless of space (indoor or outdoor),” the new guidelines state. “Unauthorized overnight activities will be considered trespassing and addressed.”

“Individuals and groups may not erect structures, walls, barriers, sculptures, or other objects on University property without prior permission from the Vice Provost for University Life,” the policy continues. “Any structure erected without permission is subject to immediate removal.”
And more:
The University of Pennsylvania suspended four students who were involved in an anti-Israel campus occupation in May.

According to an Instagram post from The Freedom School for Palestine, four undergraduate and graduate students received letters from the university stating they were placed on either a semester-long or year-long suspension for their involvement with the anti-Israel encampment.
Sometimes, there is a glimmer of sanity in the otherwise insane world of academia.
