Stanford settles two-year debate





CALIFORNIA — Stanford University and the Stanford Daily reached a settlement agreement in October in a 2-year-old lawsuit regarding the newspaper’s distribution on campus.

The Stanford Daily filed a lawsuit against the university in June 1995 for denying the newspaper access to distribute during the 1994 World Cup soccer game which was played in the campus stadium.

Todd Bernstein, the business manager of the Stanford Daily, said the newspaper and the university entered into a settlement agreement that says “The Stanford Daily would have a seat at the table when a third party comes to the university.”

This settlement gives the student newspaper a say in decisions that are made regarding campus events involving parties other than the university.
