KUTV: Lawsuit Tries to Void USVC's Contract with Michael Moore

KUTV: Lawsuit Tries to Void USVC's Contract with Michael Moore: "The fight to keep controversial filmmaker Michael Moore off the Utah Valley State campus this Wednesday has been taken to the courts.

Kay Anderson and a student, Dan Garcia, filed a lawsuit Monday in Orem against the college's student organization and the student council adviser, Phil Clegg.

The lawsuit seeks to void the school's contract with Moore until the student government can vote on it. It also seeks to keep the school from paying Moore until the court can determine whether the contract was executed properly.

``We do believe that if they had done this properly in the first place, the students would have voted it down,'' said plaintiff Kay Anderson, whose children have attended UVSC.

The matter has been referred to an attorney with the state Attorney General's Office, which represents the college.

Student leaders have refused to comment on the suit. "
