A federal judge has rejected the University of Virginia’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Kieran Ravi Bhattacharya, a former UVA medical student who was suspended after he asked a few questions during a campus panel presentation on “microaggressions.” Robby Soave’s account of the case is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand […]

‘Something for Everyone to Hate’

When Police Yell ‘Drop the Gun,’ Guess What Happens If You Don’t?
