Former 1960s radical Bill Ayers and a student drop lawsuit against University of Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Former 1960s radical Bill Ayers and a student are dropping their lawsuit against the University of Wyoming.

Court papers asking that the lawsuit be dismissed with prejudice were filed Tuesday afternoon. The move will bring to a close a situation that caused some to question UW's commitment to academic freedom and others to criticize the college for inviting a person with Ayers' past.

Ayers and student Meghan Lanker filed the lawsuit a month ago in U.S. District Court, contending that the university was preventing Ayers from speaking on campus. They contended the college had violated their rights to free speech and assembly.

A judge granted a preliminary injunction that allowed Ayers to speak on campus, which he did on April 28.
