BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A lawsuit filed on behalf of an anti-abortion organization against Boise State University has been dropped after the school changed its free speech policies.

KIVI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1IjL5c8 ) that Abolitionists4Life filed the lawsuit against the university in May 2014. They argue that BSU is violating their First Amendment rights by requiring them to put up warning signs during a protest because officials considered their material controversial.

The university’s new speech policy states that student organizations no longer need to post warning signs on campus for events that administrators deem controversial and that the school can no longer limit literature distribution to free speech zones.

Boise State University will pay $20,000, $100 of which will go to Abolitionists4Life. The remainder will cover attorneys’ fees and costs.
