In a federal lawsuit filed on Tuesday, a Turkish advocacy group
accuses the University of Minnesota of defamation and of violating
the organization's due-process and freedom-of-speech rights, The
Minnesota Daily reported. The dispute stems from a listing on the Web
page of the university's Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies
that described the Turkish Coalition of America's Web site as an
"unreliable" source of information about the mass killing of Armenians
a century ago and advised students not to use it. The center removed
the list in mid-November. The university says that the allegations
are unfounded and that it will seek to have them dismissed.
