UCSB 'porn professor' sued by pro-life activists


#1

A University of California, Santa Barbara faculty member serving three years criminal probation for attacking a teenager spreading a pro-life message on campus now faces a civil lawsuit over her actions, which she blamed on being pregnant.

A nine-page complaint filed Thursday in Santa Barbara County Superior Court by Life Legal Defense Foundation seeks compensatory and punitive damages along with civil penalties against Mireille Miller-Young, an associate professor of feminist studies at UCSB, the UC Regents and others in connection with the March 4 incident.

One of the plaintiffs, Catherine “Thrin” Short, was 16 when she and 10 others in a campus free-speech zone known as the Arbor, held signs, handed out literature and talked to passersby about the group’s view of abortion. Miller-Young came along, according to the lawsuit, shouted obscenities, mocked the group’s “intellect, age and education” and ripped a sign from the hands of a woman identified as Sarah Rivera and walked off.
