Lawfare Project, Diamond and Diamond Lawyers file class action lawsuit against McMaster


The Lawfare Project and Diamond and Diamond Lawyers have filed a $77M class action lawsuit against McMaster University and the McMaster Students Union. The lawsuit lists all current Jewish students at McMaster, as well as Jewish students who have graduated in the last two years, as plaintiffs and seeks compensation and remedies for discrimination, harassment, and physical abuse. The lawsuit also references the McMaster’s Student Union, alleging that the union endorsed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement and continues to support it on campus. “This lawsuit seeks to establish and enforce effective, and enduring measures to guarantee a safe, supportive and tolerant educational setting for all students, irrespective of their race, religion, or ethnicity,” said Lawfare Project Executive Director Brooke Goldstein.
